Food Of The Gods

It’s recipe day here at the blog, and I’ve got a pipperino for you today. I made this for weekend guests and they loved it. They left some for me and I added a bit (added bit appended to the recipe) and I loved it, too.


  • Canned peaches in raspberry syrup, drained
  • Canned pineapple chunks or tidbits, drained
  • Dried shredded coconut (or shredded fresh, if you have it)
  • Powdered sugar

Combine and nom.

Addendum: Bonnie Abraham put a recipe in the Southern Indiana Writers’ story/recipe anthology, Novel Ingredients, called “The Quest for the Elusive Pineapple Salad Recipe” in which one of the ingredients is chunks of American cheese. I had some chunks of mild cheddar, so I used that in my leftover salad. It was most tasty and nutritious, no matter how what? ugh! it sounds.

By the way, in case you don’t know, I’m not calling this the food of the gods because I have an inflated ego, but because, in Greek mythology, ambrosia is the name of the indescribable food that the gods ate. They drank nectar, to save your asking.

WRITING PROMPT: What food does your main character believe his or her god eats, or would eat, if your character were to believe in a god (or goddess, of course)?



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.
