250 g freshly grated coconut
1/2 cup crushed palm sugar
Salt to taste
Put sugar and water into a small saucepan.
If black sugar is used, add 2 tablespoons maple syrup, which makes the
flavor resemble palm sugar. Stir over gentle heat until it forms a
syrup. Add coconut and salt and stir until mixture thickens. If this
coconut and palm sugar sweet recipe is to be used as a filling it
must be stiff enough to hold its shape in a spoon.
