A Toast! To Your Coconut

Shredded coconut has a sweet coconut taste and a chewy texture. When used for cooking or baking the possibilities are endless. Try toasting it for a caramelized, nutty flavour and a crisp-chewy texture. It’s easy to toast coconut and a great way to maximize the coconut flavor in a recipe. This can easily be done in the oven or on a stove top, and takes only a few minutes. Make sure to keep a close eye and do not rush the toasting as coconut burn quite easily.

Oven:

  • Spread shredded coconut in a thin layer on a baking sheet.
  • Bake at 300F for about 20 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes to make sure that the coconut browns evenly.

 Stove Top:

  • In a large skillet, spread out shredded coconut.
  • Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until coconut is mostly golden brown.
