  1. Rinse gulaman in cold water. Drain and shred to pieces.
  2. Bring 3 cups water and 1/2 cup sugar to a boil. Add shredded gulaman and stir until dissolved.
  3. Strain gelatin mixture through a fine sieve into a shallow dish to remove impurities. Chill mixture in the refrigerator until set.
  4. Do not use canned coconut milk for this recipe. Grate coconut and extract milk, diluting it with water to get 6 cups thin coconut milk. Chill coconut milk.
  5. When ready to serve, chop gulaman coarse. Put 4 heaping tablespoon of gulaman in a glass, fill with chilled coconut milk and sweeten with sugar to taste.
  6. Sprinkle some toasted pinipig on top just before serving so pinipig won’t get soggy. Or add a tablespoon of cooked sago “tapioca” to each glass instead of toasted pinipig.
  7. Serve,
  8. Share and Enjoy!!!

Several layers of cheese cloth may also be used to strain the gelatin mixture.
