How to Make Coco Jam

Coco Jam is one of the popular and favorite food spread of many Filipinos.  It is made from coconut cream (the first and second press of grated coconut flesh) and sugar or molasses (treacle).  The coco jam is  good for sandwich snacks.  It is often eaten on toasted bread and is used to make kalamay.  This is a type of spread Filipino children love to finger lick.

The process of making coco jam is quite simple, it is a mixture of coconut cream (gata) and native brown sugar.  The mixture is continuously stirred in a frying pan until it turns sticky and become a jam.   Making Coco Jam is a good profitable business to start.
