Winter Just Isn’t Winter…

…Without ambrosia.

When the oranges are good and plentiful, I could bury myself in a bowl of this stuff.  I’ve had it, without fail, every winter of my life since I commenced chewing and I can’t imagine getting through the season without it.

This is so simple that even my noncooking friends, the ones who complain the most vociferously about how hard cooking is and how much easier it is to microwave things from packages, can make it:

Cut up oranges and put them in a bowl.  Sprinkle with a little sugar.  Sprinkle with shredded coconut.  Make another layer just like that.  Keep making layers until you run out of oranges and coconut.  Smash it down with a small plate and put it in the fridge overnight.

It’s miraculous, I tell you.  However much you made, it won’t be enough.
