Sugar Cane (grated)


1 dry coconut
1 lb dark sugar
1/4 pt water (water from dry coconut may be used)
vanilla, ground ginger or dried orange peel for flavoring


Grate coconut. Boil sugar and water together, until syrup spins a thread. Add grated coconut and flavoring to syrup and cook until mixture thickens and leaves the side of the pan. Stir constantly. Moisten a pastry board with water, drop the mixture from a spoon to it and form into cakes. When the cakes are set on one side, turn them on the other to dry. Serves 8-10
