Macapuno Balls


This is a procedure on how to make soft candies of macapuno balls with condensed milk. Take note that when using bottled preserves, before shaping into balls, set aside cooked mixture for 4-5 hours (or overnight), covered with a cheese cloth. This would prevent your balls from becoming watery in a short time.

To make Macapuno balls; Add condensed milk to macapuno preserves. Cook in low heat. Halfway, remove from heat, add cornstarch (dissolved in a little water). Blend well, then, continue cooking while stirring constantly. Cook until it thickens and mixture separates from pan. Cool.
