Jamaican Coconut Drops - by Rosemarie Gordon-Cole
When in Jamaica, stop and take a look
around; There's a good chance that you'll see at least one coconut
tree. Like other tropical islands, we have lot's of them.
I guess it is for this very reason that coconut derived snacks are so popular here. One such snack is an old-time favourite (and mine too) is called coconut drops.
Preparation for this snack varies based on your taste or how adventurous you are. Time will not permit me to detail all the variations but here are two of my favorites.
This yields about twelve (12) large drops.
So I have given you my mother’s way of making coconut drops. Here is another way you can prepare it...
One awesome thing about cooking is the flexibility to add and subtract ingredients to suit your taste.
I have seen recipes for coconut drops that include cider vinegar. If you want to jazz it up a bit you could use food coloring and remove the brown skin :-)
And this addition is a favorite with my grandfather, he likes when my mother adds some brandy to the mixture. Well, whatever you choose to add to your mixture, have fun and enjoy our Jamaican Coconut Drops.
