Use a farina boiler or a porcelain-lined saucepan. Put the sugar in the saucepan with the water and let it boil well. When it begins to form a syrup, take from the fire and stir in the freshly grated Cocoanut. Mix thoroughly and return to the fire, and let it boil until you can draw it like a thread between your finger and thumb. Be careful to stir constantly from the time you add the Cocoanut.
