I didn't have any nonsweetened coconut, and I read somewhere that in that case you should decrease sugar to 1/2 cup. Or maybe by 1/2 cup. I don't know. In any case, I used 2/3 c each water and sugar, the vanilla, and I cooked the coconut in syrup until the whole of it was at soft ball. I also beat it a little much - be careful about that; stop while it's still a little drippy, or it will be crumbly later.
The result? It was delicious, but it made about 20 square inches. Hmmm. I think I'll try and get my hands on some non-sweetened coconut next time.
