  1. nag try po akong gumawa ng cocojam using gata at brown sugar kaso hnd nag last, mga 2weeks lng nagkaron na ng amag/molds. meron po bang ginagamit para hnd amagin??? bkt po ung mga s supermarkets years bago maexpire??? thanks po!

  2. 1:1 panutsa at sugar po ang ginamit ko, bakit po magaspang parang hindi natunaw yung sugar? sa una po ok pino pero after 2-3 days magaspang n.

    1. the less water you add during milk extraction, the lesser the boiling time will be. It is good if you have a way to expel the milk using mechanical press.

  3. i tried this recipe kaya lang parng di rin na lusaw ang sugar kaya magaspang pa rin di tulad ng nabibili sa supermarket. paano po ba daat gawin para maging pino ung coco jam.
    thnak you
