Total time
Yield: 1 cup
  • 2 cups coconut cream
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  1. In a non-stick sauce pan over medium heat, combine coconut cream and brown sugar. Bring to a boil, stirring frequently until sugar is dissolved and mixture is well-blended.
  2. When mixture has come to a boil, promptly reduce heat to low and continue to cook, stirring frequently, until mixture darkens and thickens. To check for doneness, drop a teaspoonful into a bowl of cold water. If the mixture forms a soft ball in the cold water but flattens when removed, it is ready.
  3. Transfer jam into clean jars and seal completely.
