Coconut drops was one of my favorite dessert growing up in Jamaica. I was told they got the name ‘drops’ as they’re dropped (traditional on banana leaves that are held over open flames for a few seconds) once finished. I used to enjoy licking the spoon that was dipped in the syrup, great memories. You have to use a heavy bottom pot for this recipe else the sugar will burn and ruin it. Hope you give this recipe a try and enjoy.


ingredients:
2 cups coconut flesh(1 medium coconut)
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 cups water
1/4 tsp mixed spice (mixture of nutmeg cinnamon and ground clove)
1/4 tsp salt (to balance out the flavors)
1 cinnamon stick
2 dried bay leaves (if using fresh use 1)
1/4 cup ginger
