It's nice to have some kitchen tools to help in making fresh shredded coconuts. The ones being sold in the store is loaded with sugar and I just don't like it's texture in the desserts. It's feels like bunch of fine wood barks dropped in. But the fresh ones you make at your home will melt in your mouth, and they are just delicious. In S. Viet-Nam, they use a manual shredder bar to shred, which I managed to own one and had successfully produced finely shredded flavorful coconut. I wondered if I can do the same using the Cuisine Art Food Processor. So I tried. The disadvantage of the food processor is that it couldn't shred all the coconut meat, and it doesn't have the fine shred setting. So between the food processor and manual metal bar shredder, the winner is the metal bar shredder.
Spread on dehydrator tray and dry for few hours.
Food Processor vs Manual Coconut Shredder Blade
Older the coconut, thicker and firmer the coconut meat. If specifically purchasing the coconut to crop the meat, then, buy the mature coconut with browned husk.https://rockdavinci.blogspot.com/2013/12/how-to-make-home-made-coconuts-cream.html
