Cranberry Salad from Kristi's shower

As requested by Grandma here is the cranberry salad recipe :)

Mimi’s Cranberry Salad
(not quite so sweet)

1 package fresh cranberries                                  1 cup sugar
2 scant cups miniature marshmallows                1 cup whipping cream
1 8 ounce crushed pineapple, well drained

Put the cranberries through the blender on coarse setting.  Add sugar and chill for 2 hours.  Add crushed pineapple, marshmallows.  Whip the cream and fold into the cranberry mixture.  Chill 4 hours or over night.  This recipe can be watery.  Drain the pineapple on a paper towel.  When whipping the cream make sure it is very stiff.  Fresh cranberries are found in the produce section of supermarkets in November and December.  They also freeze well and can be stored in the freezer for a year.
