Hey, look what we found (and couldn't resist buying)! Coconut jam! Only... we don't know what to do with it.
Coconut jam is simple. It's just coconut milk and sugar, boiled down into a thick and sticky paste, rather like dulce de leche. Many Filipino cooks make something similar called kaya
, which is an eggy coconut jam with many eggs included - almost like a custard.
This one has no eggs, and we're just now getting ready to try it. We're cautiously hopeful about it as an ice cream topping, or maybe a mix in for indulgent cookie bars.
But we wanted to throw it out here first - what do you do with coconut jam?
