Re:new holiday dessert idea
When we grew up in the 50's, mom made a dessert called "mush",,,a version,I guess, of ambrosia,,sort of. We're making it this year again because my kids love it,,,,
Soak a package of marshmallows by placing a large can of Fruit cocktail(heavy syrup and all) over them. Let them soak over night....Remove marshmallows, and smush in a big servingt bowl with a fork 'til creamy...return fruit cocktail to marshmallows...add one small container of sour cream and stir thoroughly..return to refrigerator to get cold, and serve....It is soooo great...Notice this version has no coconut.....I guess you could add it, or in other ways vary it, but that's what for 60 years our family has called Christmas mush!!My mom had eight brothers and sisters, and all 8 made this. Where they got the recipe,I don't know...but today we've spread around the country...and many new generations will be having "mush" for dessert. Try it and join the club!!!!
