Homemade Kaya~Coconut Jam


2 Cups (6 to 7 )Large Duck Eggs
2 Cups Coconut Milk
1 1/4 Cup of Cane Sugar
4 Pandan Leaves, washed, dried & knotted


Remove 5 Tbsp of sugar for the caramel.

Place the remainder sugar and duck eggs in a large mixing bowl. Whisk the eggs and sugar until the sugar dissolves. Then gradually add in the coconut milk and mix until well combine.

Place the sugar in a heavy cast-iron pot over moderate heat. Spread the sugar evenly. Once the edges of the sugar begin to brown, push the liquified sugar towards the middle of the pot with a wooden spoon. When the sugar turned brown in color, remove the pot from the heat.

Prepare a large saucepan fill with water and a piece of wet kitchen towel over low heat. Place the pot on top of the wet kitchen towel and
strain the egg mixture into the pot and add the knotted pandan leaves.
