This recipe might as well say, "take a can of coconut milk and dump it down the drain". I should have read the reviews before I had to change my syrup plans Christmas morning upon finding and making this recipe. Disgusting! King's Hawaiian....how bout a free loaf of bread for this screw up.

Wow. Something is terribly wrong with this recipe. King Hawaiian - someone needs to go back to the kitchen with this one. The salt and the baking soda completely ruin this syrup.

I offered to make the cocoanut syrup for a special Brunch and down the drain it went, sadly and I had no cocoanut syrup in reserve to try again. The baking soda and salt ruined it so badly. I am confused. I rarely have such a massive fail in cooking. I trusted this site as I have purchased the products for so many years. Sad face and no syrup for the Brunch.

Ibwas looking for a coconut syrup recipe. I think there is an error in this one. I was not paying close enough attention and added the salt - just 1 teaspoon. I should have known better. It totally ruined this syrup. I didn't aphave another can of coconut milk, so breakfast was kind of ruined!!
