00:05
 
Heat the coconut, evaporated milk and sugar together in a saucepan over medium heat. Simmer for about 25 minutes, stirring frequently, until the mixture reaches the soft-ball stage (a small amount dropped into cold water forms a soft ball). Add the butter and lemon zest and stir to combine.

Remove from the heat and cool to room temperature, then beat with a wooden spoon until the mixture thickens and goes glossy.

Pour into a lined tin and press down with a spoon. Sprinkle the nuts over the top and press in lightly. Leave to set overnight and cut into squares. Serve with small glasses of mint tea.
