  • Summary

    This juicy, fresh-fruit version evokes those described in 19th-century southern cookbooks. Flakes of fresh coconut provide a nice chew, and a little Sherry gives it sophistication and complexity. Ambrosia is often served as part of the transition to dessert, but at a generous meal like this one it fits in well earlier on, providing a bright, refreshing contrast to the main course.

    Ingredients

    • 1 medium coconut
    • 8 large navel oranges
    • 2 tablespoons sugar
    • Pinch of kosher or sea salt
    • 3 tablespoons cream Sherry
