Cocoanut Candy | Sweetmeat | Kosher Diet Food Recipe
1 large cocoanut
1 tablespoonful cocoanut milk
1 lb. brown sugar
Cut the cocoanut into small thin strips about half an inch long.
Boil with the sugar and the milk from the nut, stirring all the time.
Drop a little on to a wet board, and if it be sufficiently cooked, it will harden.
When ready, form the mixture into round cakes with a tablespoon, and drop them on to a wet board as fast as possible.
