  1. Dear Rose,
    This Caramel-Coconut Jelly sounds SO good. Years ago, I worked in Indonesia. Now I am putting on a tea as a fundraiser for my church, and it is going to be an Indonesian theme. I think I will try this jelly as one of the dishes – sure to be a hit.
    Thank you for sharing your wonderful recipes. I didn’t do much cooking (almost none) in the years I lived in Indonesia, so never learned how to make some of the wonderful dishes.
