Hot Pandesal and Coco Jam: The Ultimate Filipino Comfort Snack

Coconut  Jam

(Yields  5 to 5 1/2 cups  Prep Time 10 minutes  Cooking Time 2 1/2 to 3 hours)

4 cups coconut milk
2/3 cup glucose
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup panutsa, crushed and chopped

1  Put coconut milk and glucose in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, mixing continuously.

  Add brown sugar and panutsa when mixture boils. Reduce heat and stir until mixture becomes thick. Turn off heat and let cool.

  When completely cooled, transfer into sterilized airtight jars.

Thickening tip  Coco jam becomes thicker as it cools—be careful not to overcook it.

Better yet, just buy it from the supermarket! 😉 Lily’s is the best.

    1. Yup, Coco jam is really delicious. It tastes like home. It’s quite difficult to make, too, because of all the stirring. But it’s worth the effort.:) Thanks for dropping by!

    1. Yes, they do! Panutsa is a Filipino delicacy made from sugar cane, similar to the Mexican Panocha. It is actually crystallized brown sugar that looks like a giant candy and can be eaten as is (like I used to do when I was a kid 😉 ). It is used in many Filipino desserts. 🙂
