Caribbean: Jamaica: Jamaican Coconut Drops

Caribbean: Jamaica: Jamaican Coconut Drops
4 cups dried coconut flesh, diced
4 cups water
2 cups organic cane sugar
2 tablespoons fresh ginger, grated, or 1 tablespoon ginger powder
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg, grated
1/2 teaspoon pink Himalayan salt
Firstly, you have to pour water into a medium saucepan. Place the saucepan on high heat and add dried coconut pieces to it.
Continue to stir until sugar dissolves completely. Let the mixture boil for about 10 minutes. Now, you have to make sure to stir the mixture constantly; otherwise, there are high chances that the sugar will burn and it will ruin your dish.
Once the liquid reduces to half, reduce the heat and let the mixture simmer for about 10 more minutes until it starts getting thicker. You have to notice that the mixture should not get too thick. It should be thick but should have a runny consistency. It took one hour to cook until thick.
Grease a baking tray with coconut oil and pour in two tablespoons to the mixture on the baking tray; it will get a round shape. However, you can shape it like a drop as well to stay true to the name.
Once you fill the baking tray, leave it to cool down at room temperature for about 6 minutes. Once done, remove it from the tray and enjoy!
Honestly, this coconut drops recipe is so simple, and I don’t think anything can go wrong with it. But still, for someone
who is new to this dessert and the idea of coconut drops, here are a few things you should keep in mind:
Make sure the coconut pieces are small. Ideally, the pieces should be about 1/4 inch in width.
Note that the smaller the pieces, the more easily you will get them in the drops.
