Freshly Grated Coconut
(Coco Rallado)
What You Need:
  • A fresh coconut, about 2˝ pounds

  • How To Cook:
    NOTE: When buying a coconut, shake it to make sure it is full of milk.

    2. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Puncture 2 of the 3 smooth, dark eyes of the coconut by hammering the sharp tip of an ice pick or screw driver through them. Drain all of the coconut milk into a measuring cup. There should be about ˝ cup. Set the milk aside.

    3. Bake the empty coconut in the oven for 15 minutes, then transfer it to a chopping block. While the coconut is hot, split the shell with a hammer. The shell should fall away from the meat; if it doesn't, cut off any bits still clinging to the shell.

    4. Pare off the brown outer skin of the coconut meat with a swivel-bladed peeler or small, sharp knife, and cut the coconut meat into 1-inch pieces. Place these in the jar of a blender with ˝ cup of coconut milk, and blend them at high speed for 1 minute, or until finely grated.

    5. Alternatively, grate the coconut by hand, piece by piece, through a hand grater, and stir in ˝ cup of coconut milk.

    To Make: about 3˝ cups
