Cool a bit and this is ready to go!!!

Shred or chop macapuno coconut and this will yield about two cups. Bring water to boil and put the macapuno for about five minutes. Drain and set aside.

Meanwhile, in a bowl, dissolve sugar in 1 cup water. Transfer mixture in a small casserole under medium fire and stir constantly for about five minutes until dissolved. Add the macapuno and let simmer uncovered for another ten minutes. Add vanilla and toasted sesame seeds and remove from fire. Let cool and transfer in a glass container.
