Subject: Re: Ambrosia!
So far the discussion of ambrosia seems to focus on varieties of Jell-o
based desserts rather than the meaning of the word "ambrosia." Am I the
only one who remembers ambrosia as a mixture primarily of orange and
grapefruit slices, with coconut and perhaps pineapple and/or some other
fresh fruits (but here I get vague) but nothing else except maybe fruit
I remember my grandmother making it as a part of Christmas dinner (it
would have been over 40 years ago), and that I didn't like it. I
probably would have liked it if it had included Jell-o and something
gooey like Cool-Whip (which hadn't been invented then).
