After cracking a coconut open and draining the liquid, bake the two halves in a 400 degree F oven for 25-30 minutes. The fresh coconut meat will come out very easy with a little help from a soup spoon. And your kitchen will have a tropical scent!

If you need the coconut very fine, grind in a coffee grinder. Remove and spread on a baking tray and dry well and store. Use in your cooking and baking.
