Nutty for Coconuts

Christmas baking means almond joy bars. Which means coconuts.  This year we received coconuts in our coop fruit and veggie baskets. Fresh coconuts. I think I drooled.

then I remembered how to get at that meat.

it involves a hammer. Santa came early this year. No sooner had I smashed open the first one then I thought there has got to be a better way. So I consulted the font of all things– The internet.

Turns out if you freeze the things it’s easier to get the meat out of the husk. That only leaves the inner covering. The internet says you can use a potato peeler.

the internet lies.

I ended up using a paring knife before putting the bits in the food processor and shredding it. The good news is I have several cups to spare and I have no fingerprints so I can go on a crime spree. Next time, I think I will just buy the preshredded stuff.
