Nut Tree Marshmellow Sauce-

Is this good for you- hm probably not but it is sooo good. When I was in High School I worked at the Nut Tree Resturant in Vacaville, Ca. I worked there 3 yrs. I worked in the Kitchen - deserts, sandwiches, salads, and prep. There stuff was great.

Marshmallow Sauce

1C sugar
1/2 C hot water
2/3 C light corn syrup
2 egg whites
1/4t vanilla
dash of alt
1/4C mayonnaise
1 T grated orange rind

Combine sugar, cornsyrup, and hot water. Heat, stirring until sugar dissolves. Then boil without stirring to firm ball stage (244-248) humid weather 248. Beat egg whites tiff. Slowly add hot syrup, beating at high speed until thick and fluffy. add salt and vanilla. Gently fold in mayo and orange rind. Makes about 3C. If thicker than desired, fold in 1 or 2 more T of mayo. or 1 -2t water.

This was served with fresh pineapple. I can't remember if we served it with the fruit salad or not. I almost remember how to make that. I know at the bottom of the plate there was a wedge of watermelon, slice of coconut on top of that. Strawberries on one side, bunch of green grapes on the other. A banana sliced in 1/2 long ways on either side, more fruit on top then an orchid, then the waitress took the plate to deserts they put toasted nut bread slices at the top and in the middle a couple scoops of ice cream. It was very good.
