Coconut tablet

A sweet treat! That's what coconut tablet is. My mother in law spent almost the whole day with us on Thursday last week. While here she made this scrumptious too sweet to eat everyday treat. As promised in a previous post here are the pics and the recipe. Bear in mind that most older Caribbean cooks do not use measurements so I won't be able to give quantities but enjoy the pictures nonetheless.

The ingredients are grated coconut, water, lots of brown sugar, grated ginger and vanilla essence.

First step remove the coconut from the shell and cut into pieces.
