This easy-to-make Belizean treat only requires two ingredients.

Break open the coconuts. Drain and reserve the liquid. Grate the meat. Combine liquid, coconut meat and brown sugar in a heavy iron saucepan. Cook over medium to low heat for 45 minutes or until the mixture begins to hold together. May add evaporated milk for desired consistency and minced ginger for flavor. Cook for 5 minutes longer. Pour the mixture onto a greased board or baking sheet. Let stand until cool and hardened. Cut into small pieces.
