THE SIDE DISH :: Coco Jam

What is Coco Jam?
Philippine coconut jam is made from coconut cream (the first and second press of grated coconut flesh) and sugar. Growing up I would spread it on my toast or pandesal (traditional Filipino bread). I rediscovered it on a recent trip to the Asian food market.

For the past few days, I've been reliving my childhood by having toast and coco jam for breakfast...along with a cup of very strong coffee. I have now introduced this tradition to my daughter, who enjoys it on toasted sesame seed bagels. Life is good.
