Dawn’s Sunny Pineapple Recipe!
This recipe came to me from my sister's mum-in-law. I was told it is American and supposed to be served as a side dish at Thanksgiving or Christmas, not as a dessert, Dawn.
Ingredients: 1 450g can crushed pineapple in syrup, 1 310g can mandarin segments, Only the white marshmallows from a 250g pack of pink & white marshmallows, 1 300g container sour cream, 1 cup shredded coconut.
Method: Open and drain crushed pineapple and mandarin segments well, place in large bowl. Snip marshmallows in half with kitchen scissors, add to bowl. Tip sour cream into bowl and add shredded coconut. Stir gently together, being careful not to break up the mandarin segments, until all combined. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour for flavours to mingle.
Note: only use white marshmallows because the pink ones have a strawberry flavour and this (and the colour) just won’t work. Marshmallows have to be cut in half so the cut sides absorb flavours and add sweetness to the mix.
There seem to be lots of variations on the ambrosia theme on the interweb, I have only tried this one.
Happy eating, Dawn :-)
Thanks Dawn I can't wait to try this Ambrosia! Anne.
