jamaican desserts dropsJamaican Coconut Drops - Jamaican Desserts

There are many more, but these are perhaps the most popular traditional Jamaican desserts, and certainly the ones that I can easily recollect because I enjoyed them so much!

Quite naturally, most of them are products of our flavorsome fruits and vegetables. Of course, the coconut and the banana stands tall in this regard.

OK, here we go!
