General Fruit Questions
Can I have the recipe for Mary Mixon’s Ambrosia?
Yes, Ingredients are: Oranges: Section or cut into chunks. Amount depends on the size of your group – Oranges are the main ingredient. Pineapple: Canned, unsweetened, and drained. Cut in small chunks, just enough to flavor. Coconut: Shredded, just a small amount. Red Maraschino Cherries: Cut in halves – for color during the Holidays, use Red and Green. Preparation: Combine oranges, pineapple and cherries – chill (it should be juicy). About 1 hour before serving, mix in coconut. For a festive look sprinkle more coconut on top and a few cherries for decoration. Always best when served fresh.
Note: Cherries color will fade if prepared and stored for several days due to the acid content of the orange.
