Forget all you have ever known about "ambrosia" as dessert - you know, mini marshmallows, pineapple, something creamy holding it all together - yuck, in other words.
I have figured out how it was really made.
When the Greek gods were chowing it down, it consisted of
Fresh basil, cut into very fine strips
all mixed together and topped with Ricotta cream, which take about 2 minutes and consists of
15 oz whole milk ricotta cheese, mixed in the blender with
2 T sugar and
a generous squirt of honey
That's it. Simple. Perfect. Amazing.
Happy Father's Day.
