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?
