Recipes from Martha Ruth Leonard
Ambrosia (food of the gods)
8 large navel oranges
8-oz. can crushed drained
and section oranges. Layer one-third oranges, sugar, coconut and
pineapple in a 2-1/2qt. glass bowl. Repeat procedure twice with
remaining oranges, sugar, pineapple and coconut. Cover and chill at
least 3 hours. Garnish with maraschino cherries, if desired. Yields 12
Superfine sugar: Grind granulated sugar in your food processor for superfine sugar. It dissolves instantly in liquid.
Spiced Peach Salad
29-oz. can peach halves, with liquid
3-oz. pkg. orange
Drain peach halves, reserving syrup. Set peach halves aside. Combine reserved syrup, vinegar, cloves and cinnamon in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil. Add peaches and cook over low heat 10 minutes. Remove peach halves from spiced syrup and distribute the peaches equally among eight lightly oiled, 6-ounce custard cups. Strain spiced syrup into a 1-quart glass measure; discard cloves and stick cinnamon. Add enough boiling water to spiced syrup to yield 3 cups. Combine hot syrup and orange gelatin in a medium mixing bowl, stirring to dissolve; set aside to cool 20 minutes. Stir in sour cream. Pour gelatin mixture evenly over peach halves in custard cups; chill until firm. Unmold on lettuce leaves to serve. Yields eight servings.
