How do I sweeten coconut?
By Yvonneg from Plano, TX
Hi! Well, coconut is already pretty sweet, and of course it matters what you're going to use it for. But, since you didn't mention a recipe I'll guess that you want to eat it fresh from the shell? After you break it out of the shell, you could try dunking it in a "bath" of about 1/2 cup of water and 2 Tbspn of sugar or Splenda. An alternative would be using vanilla abstract in place of the sugar. But we've always eaten fresh coconut as is, when it's fresh. Hope this helps!
