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 juice? 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). Peter McGraw Linfield College McMinnville, OR
