This recipe was given to me in the late 1980s by Diane Thornton in Jackson Mississippi. I have made it each year since, and when I bring it to gatherings people rave about it, so I bring it year after year. Some people say it's more like a desert than a side dish. All I know is that it's a standby for me and always gets a nod.

It tasted fantastic. I made it almost exactly. I used a 20oz can of crushed pineapple but I pressed the liquid out and I just sprinkled some plain brown suger on top.

This was sooo good. Your absolutly right it taste like a desert. My husband ate it as a desert with a glass of milk. I would cut back on the sugar, just because theres enough sugars from the pineapple and coconut. Overall an excellent side dish
