If A Host Offers You Ambrosia, During What Course Would It Be Served?

 

Dessert:

 

A fruit salad without morals, nothing about ambrosia indicates that it should be served as a main course. Nevertheless, this is where it’s most likely to appear. I have never seen ambrosia on a dessert table. But have bared witness to it resting amongst mashed potatoes, Brussels sprouts and stuffing at countless Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners.

But it wasn’t until the early 20th century that ambrosia as we know it came to be. A marketing campaign by Stephen F. Whitman & Son of Philadelphia encouraged home cooks to include marshmallow whip in ambrosia salad. By the late 1920s, whole marshmallows were introduced, creating the fluffy ambrosia salad that many of us recognize today.
