Coconut Merchant: Coconut Jam & Raisin Pastries

I was delighted to try Coconut Merchant delicious range of 100% natural coconut products, The amazing new British brand has launched in the UK offers a diverse range of delicious 100% natural Coconut products.

Coconut Merchants work closely with farmers and cooperatives in South East Asia to ensure all products are ethically sourced from farmers who are fairly paid and respected for their produce. Coconut Merchants extensive ranges is great for Coconut lovers, its also great to use in cooking and baking as it contains Lauric Acid which can help to lower cholesterol and kill harmful bacteria.
With so many delicious Coconut Products it was important for me to test out my favourite recipe using the delicious Coconut Jam.
