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.
