Grandmother Cohn's Heavenly Hash

Hollywood Dreamz


This recipe was a favorite during any of the Holidays, but especially around Christmas or Easter....It was quite colorful and it was a nicely sweet and cold tasting treat after eating the huge buffet of Turkey, Prime Rib or Glazed Ham and Pineapples, Candied Yams, Mash Potatoes and Turkey Gravy, Fresh Vegetables sauteed in Garlic and onions with Almonds and fresh rolls or cornbread...God Bless my family for creating happy memories.
