My family loves to eat cream cheese,jelly,and crackers for appetizers at family parties. Being the Jelly Queen of the family, it is up to me to supply the jelly. While trying to come up with a unique flavor for a pool party, I could not get the memory of 1980's suntan lotion smell out of my mind. When coconut flashed in my mind, I immediately heard the lyrics,"You put da lime in da coconut.." and from there I ended up with a delish coconut lime jelly !
