  • Question
    Why do I need to rehydrate the coconut flakes just to dehydrate them again in the oven?

    After the water is extracted, the oils are removed leaving, only "coconut meal." If the oils are left in the coconut flour, aside from having caking problems, there is a high probability of the flour quickly going rancid unless used right away. If the leftover coconut milk is refrigerated and allowed to rest overnight, the oils will rise to the surface and solidify, where they can be skimmed and rendered into a clear coconut oil. Whatever liquid remains can be refrigerated and used when preparing rice.
    Thanks!

    Until it's dry. That is, the amount of time required depends on how much liquid you squeeze out before you put it in the oven.
    Thanks!

    I dried mine under the sun for a day. Is it still good?

    This depends on whether you dried it inside or outside. If you dried it outside, there's always a possibility that the coconut has become contaminated by bugs or pollen. The best place to dry coconut is inside the house on a windowsill that sits in the sun, with the doors closed or insect-repellent doors closed over.
    Thanks!

  • You can use coconut pieces from a fresh coconut instead of the flaked or shredded coconut.
  • If you use the sweetened version, your flour will be sweeter. Keep this in mind and adjust your sugar in your recipes accordingly.
