Desiccated Coconut 200g
Desiccated coconut is produced naturally from shelled coconuts, which are oven-dried in small pieces. The desiccated coconut is toasted lightly, so it gets a dry and firm consistency, which also increases its shelf life.
Desiccated Coconut is typically used for baking, but it also makes an interesting coating, and it is used in many Asian dishes. In baked goods which contain chopped almonds, desiccated coconut can be used to replace the almonds in the recipe.
