Coconut Math

July 27, 2008 at 9:08 pm (*) (, )

The cost of one coconut is $1.29, before tax.  The yield is 16-18 oz coconut milk and 2 jars of dried shredded coconut.

If I were to buy it in the store, I would pay $3.29 for a 16 oz bag of shredded coconut and $1.10 for a 14 oz can of coconut milk.

That’s more than $3.10 in savings.  All for 20 minutes of work.  No added preservatives or ingredients that I can’t identify.  Fresh coconut milk and yummy shredded coconut.

10 simple steps to enjoying raw/fresh coconut:

  1. break
  2. scrape
  3. shred
  4. add water
  5. drain/squeeze
  6. pour
  7. refrigerate
  8. dehydrate
  9. wait
  10. enjoy!!!

Not to worry: a more detailed explanation is on its way.  Maybe with pictures.
