Coconut Recipes

tag-coconutCoconuts come from the coconut palm tree, which are common in tropical regions. The various parts of the coconut fruit have a number of culinary uses.

The white, fleshy part of the seed, the coconut meat, is used fresh or dried in cooking, especially in confections and desserts such as macaroons. Desiccated coconut or coconut milk made from it is frequently added to curries and other savory dishes. Dried coconut is also used as the filling for many chocolate bars.
