Jamaican COCONUT DROPS (cut cake)

1 Dry Coconut
1 lb. Brown Sugar
1 tbsp Grated Ginger
¼ tsp Salt
3 cups Water
1 tsp. Vanilla Flavoring
Remove coconut flesh from the shell using a knife. Cut up coconut into ¼” pieces, please don’t measure the pieces when you do this, just estimate as close as possible.
Rinse in cold water to remove the small leftover shell pieces. Bring water to boil in a saucepan, and then add all ingredients. Allow to boil for about 40 minutes on high.
Stir the pot occasionally with a wooden spoon to let the sugar keep from binding too fast. When the brew starts to develop some consistency, remove by spoonfuls and place on a greased surface.
Wait until the drops are cool, in about 20 minutes, then serve as a snack.
