Put water to boil, add diced coconut and boil for about 40 minutes.
Add the sugar and ginger and continue boiling until the mixture becomes syrupy (about 30-35 minutes).
Drop by tablespoons full on a green banana leaf (Jamaican tradition) or on a wet cookie sheet.
Allow to cool until the drops have fully set/become hard.
When they are fully set, remove from banana leaf or cookie sheet and serve.
