Express your love to someone special by DIY gifts. Apple Cheeks was so proud to make her own coconut jam for her dad. Making coconut jam is easy and fun:

Top picture shown the ingredients: 2 eggs, 1/2 cup of sugar, 1 1/2 cups coconut milk, a pinch of salt, 1/2 teaspoon corn flour and one pandan leaf.

Bottom picture: caramelized sugar by heating a teaspoon of sugar and a teaspoon of water in the pot.

In a bowl, beat the eggs, add in sugar, coconut milk, salt and corn flour. Stir untill ingredients are well mixed.


Apple cheeks was so proud of herself cooking at the stove for the first time.

In the pot with caramalized sugar, pour in the mixture together with pandan leaf. Cook it in a very slow fire and keep stiring it. It will take about 30 minutes untill the mixture is thicken up. It will be brown in color. Done! My family love toast bread with coconut jam and butter. Yummy!

Please assist you kids while they are cooking at stove.
