It is called “Kopyor” in Indonesia and called Macapuno in Philippines. It is a coconut sport or naturally occurring coconut mutant which has an abnormal development of the endosperm. As a result, it is a soft jelly-like coconut flesh. Unlike a coconut fruit, Macapuno does not contain water inside but instead it is completely filled with thick and curdled white meat.
Macapuno meat is famous and widely used for making popular and world class sweets like macapuno ice cream, macapuno candy and macapuno preserves. Today, This is my version of Macapuno Balss Recipe. Enjoy!
