Jamaican Coconut Drops

~December 2011~


Coconut Drops!  I spent Christmas with my family making all kinds of delicious Jamaican dishes and desserts as part of our cultural tradition.  I helped my mother make Rum cake, and I helped my father make coconut drops from scratch.  It was our first time making these drops with a labor of love, and as simple as this recipe might seem the challenging part was timing it just right in order to create those nice hard chunks. Yum!
