I made this Ambrosia recipe for my SNAP lesson at Salvation Army. The participants are Women's Service League members. Most are aged 60 and over. They loved the Ambrosia and several said that they would make the recipe for Thanksgiving. Thank you for increasing the selection of approved SNAP recipes.
