Coconut Drops

by Ann Marie Hewitt

Coconut Drops is one of Jamaica's favorite snacks. It is most popular among children. As a child, my friends and I would save our lunch money, just to buy coconut drops from the vendors at our school. Here is a simple recipe:

(Yields: 12)
2 cups diced coconut
1 tbsp. grated root ginger
1 tsp. vanilla
1 lb. brown sugar
A pinch of salt

1) Combine all ingredients, adding water
accordingly, in a saucepan
2) Cook until it becomes very sticky. Stir mixture
frequently so that it does not stick to the pot
or burn. (20 - 30 minutes)
3) Scoop and heap mixture onto a baking sheet/grease
paper and let cool.
