DIRECTIONS

  • Cook sugar in a heavy aluminum or iron pot and stir until it liquefies.
  • Mix the shredded coconut in with the sugar and stir until well blended.
  • Stir occasionally until liquid reddens.
  • Add molasses, dried orange peel and ginger.
  • Stir to blend and when the mixture starts to rise and fall, stir briskly and keep stirring until it leaves the side of the pot.
  • Remove from the heat and drop by table spoon onto a lightly greased tray or dish.
  • Shape into balls (about the size of table tennis balls).
  • Remove when firm and store in airtight containers.
  • * Serving size is a wild guess as I don't remember how much this recipe produces! Same with cooking time.
