L. P. Jackson's Grape Ambrosia

1 6oz. box of strawberry Jello

2 c. seedless grapes (halved)

1½ c. chopped walnuts or pecans

1½ c. miniature marshmallows

11oz. can of mandarin oranges

1 c. or more toasted coconut (optional)

1 c. sour cream

Mix Jello with 2 cups of hot water until dissolved.

While Jello is hot, stir in sour cream. Cool to room

temperature ( Approx. 45 min.). Add other ingredients,

except the coconut. Pour into 9x13 inch casserole dish,

and chill in fridge until firm. Sprinkle coconut on top

if desired and serve.

Note: Do not drain the oranges!

This is my great-grandfather's recipe and one of my personal favorites.

It is a good light dessert after a big meal, and I can never eat enough

of it. Try it out and enjoy.
