Ginataang Mais with Young Coconut Meat

Ginataang Mais is usually made with corn kernels, glutinous rice, coconut milk and sugar but this new recipe I made today is a little special,  I added young coconut meat and a little vanilla extract for added flavor and it turned out so delicious that we finished it all in one sitting.

You can replace the can of corn with 2 ears of fresh corn and remember to cook it a little longer. Also, start with 1/3 cup of sugar and add more to fit your taste-buds. Just taste and adjust accordingly. 

You can also add ripe jack-fruit but for me it kind of over power the taste of the corn.
