Dulce de Coco

“Nunca olvido una experiencia particular con el dulce de coco. Cuando recién había cambiado de carro, armamos un viaje al Lago de Yojoa con amigos. Generalmente no me detengo en la carretera, pero las amigas que iban conmigo en mi carro querían parar a comprar de todo y usar el baño. Creo que lo compraron en los puestos que hay entrando a Siguatepeque, y como teníamos hambre empezamos a comerlo en el carro. Delish. Con pedacitos de coco rallado que se te meten entre los dientes, te podes comer como diez de una sola vez! Después del viaje me fijé que ellas lo dejaron caer en el asiento trasero y lo mancharon por el calor, nunca me dijeron y no limpiaron tampoco! Lo peor es que no me di cuenta hasta dos días después de haber regresado a Tegus, cuando lleve el carro a lavar…”

  These tiny round treats are one of the many delicious sweet delicacies we produce from coconuts. They are simple and fine, and so, so sweet! Made directly from the pulp of the coconut and lots and lots of sugar, they are more candy than fruit, and are typically found in confectionery stands around the country. The high amount of fat in coconut and the loads of sugar make this a little bite-size bomb. But no need to complicate yourselves! A coconut fresh from the palm tree is a most delicious treat in itself. Popularly sold whole and sealed, they are cut open on-site for you to enjoy fresh in their entirety: water and flesh! And, boy, are they refreshing…especially under the hot, coastal sun with the sound of the waves on the beach!
