Hit me with a coconut! I made this lickity split, and we were right in business. As a previous reviewer said, that little coconut (after coming out of a heated oven) looks like a wild-child, I almost didn't want to cut it open :) But I did, great instructions! Now I don't need a chisel/hammer method to open my coconuts, and there is nothing better then fresh coconut milk in recipes - YUM-O! Tx! Made for ZWT7
It works!! Love the way these directions are written making the whole process very easy. Fallowed and made as written, laughing when the coconut came out of the oven as it looked a little like a strange person in need of a shave and haircut. Thanks so much for making the process of using fresh coconut so easy and a lot less scary, this recipe is a keeper that will make me feel more confident in buying fresh coconuts.
I love coconut in all it's forms - the meat itself of course, the water to drink (or cook with if I can behave myself), and of course coconut milk! However a single serve of coconut water currently runs about $2 and shredded or grated UNsweetened coconut is hard to find and pricey. Coconut milk you'd think was gold!! Now I can make use of the bounty around me here in FL or even save lots buying fresh coconuts in the store. The little bit of time it takes is well worth the saving a nothing can compete with the freshness. Thanks for the great instructions!
