    Traditional coconut jam just has a simple white color. Apart from traditional coconut jam, which is white only, we can add colors taken from natural fruits. The yellow is taken from the juice of pineapple or passion fruit, while the red is taken from baby jackfruit or beetroot. Pandan leaves can give the jam the color of light green, while condensed coffee gives the color of brown. The purple is taken from the magenta plant or radicchio.
