You are right JOHNOR, it doesn't look right. Whoever served it should have either mashed it up with a fork (in the case of whole cranberry sauce) or sliced it (in the case of jellied cranberry sauce) before serving.

Leaving sitting there in the form of the can is just.....wrong.

You know it's funny about the canned cranberry sauce, it makes me think of growing up. My mom used to buy the sauce in the can and she always liked it because you could use the can lines as a cutting guide...and there our cranberry sauce would sit all nice and evenly cut! Memories....LOL

I love jello and (jellied, from the can) cranberries. And it doesn't look to bad on the table if you slice it.

I'm from Canada too and have never had Jello as a side dish with a main course. There's been cranberry jelly with turkey (but usually Ocean Spray) or mint jelly with lamb (usually somebody that makes mint jelly) but the only Jello I've eaten has been for dessert. What flavour Jello would you have with dinner?? Serious question!!!!
