DIRECTIONS

  • If you don't have silpat, butter a cookie sheet.
  • Bring the water to a boil in a heavy saucepan and add the coconut and ginger.
  • Reduce heat and cook for 15 minutes.
  • Gradually add the sugar, stirring to disolve.
  • Cook over a high heat, stirring frequently, until it is thick and sticky (120C /236F on a candy thermometer). This will take about 20-30 minutes.
  • To test for doneness, drop a little of the mix into a glass of cold water. If it turns into a ball, it is done.
  • Turn off the heat and stir in the nuts.
  • Drop by teaspoon onto your baking sheet and let the candy cool.
  • Makes about 20 large candies.
