  • Ingredients for Meat Filling:
  • 1 medium dried coconut (it must      be a dried coconut )
  • 5 tablespoons minced or      shredded ginger
  • 3 cups dark unprocessed sugar.
  • 1 cup Water

  • Use a sharp point to puncture the three eyes of the coconut and drain the water | Break the coconut using a hammer and remove the hard outer shell. | Using a small knife dice the coconut flesh into x inch cubes. | Combine the diced coconuts cubes and ginger | Place in a deep pot with the sugar and water. |
  • Put stove on high and boil | Boil until water gone and the sugar is like carmel and sticky.
  • Place a sheet of greased paper (can also use moistened foil paper) on a flat surface (kitchen counter) close by. (In Jamaica some use Banana leaves instead of greased paper) | Stir the mixture in the pot with a large spoon to be sure it does not stick to the bottom.
  • Use the spoon to scoop out mixture to create 1-1/4-inch wide mounds on the greased paper. | Each 1-1/4-inch wide mound should be placed in a separate heap on the greased paper.
  • Let the drops cool and harden. Serve
