Making evaporated coconut nectar
Farmers climb the coconut palms and harvest the blossom nectar by gently slicing the flower bud, attaching a cup and returning every few hours to collecting the dripping nectar. Once harvested the nectar is transferred into kettles where the evaporation process lowers the moisture content of the nectar until it becomes a thick syrup with a brix count of 75 to 81. Six litres of nectar must be reduced to make one litre of syrup. To make sugar the evaporation process is continued until crystals form and eventually become granules.
