Coconut Milk Jelly

Maya chose this for her birthday “cake” on her 7th birthday. I think the recipe came out of an old Canadian cookbook I had.

3 1/2 cups coconut water
1/2 cup half and half
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
2 knox gelatin packets
drop of red food coloring

Heat coconut water and sugar to boiling. Remove from heat.

Stir half and half, gelatin and food coloring together.

Pour boiled mix into gelatin, stir well and add vanilla. Pour into a pretty mold and refrigerate overnight.

Just before serving, loosen mold by gently going around the outside edge and flipping it on a platter.
