Wednesday's Wonders: Dulce de Coco

I really enjoy having a daily theme. It helps me focus :). So, I going to try Recipes on Wednesdays for a while, under the title Wednesday's Wonders. I am planning on posting a recipe from the same department that the Myth for Monday comes from. That means that today's recipes comes from the Department of Magdalena (though it is probably eaten in other parts of the Caribbean Coast as well.)

Dulce de coco (Coconut Sweets) -- From Magdalena


1 cup sugar
1/4 cup raisins
2-3 cups shredded coconut
1 cinnamon stick
2 cups water
1/2 teaspoon lime juice


1. Put the sugar, coconut, raisins, cinnamon, and water in a pan on low to medium heat, stirring constantly.
2. When at a low boil, add lime juice.
3. Cook until it until it starts to thicken. Then, let cool and eat.
