Coconut Flakes

I post coconut flakes that are used to make fresh coconut milk and to garnish over dessert recipes like steam cassava with coconut flakes.

Instructions on making Coconut Flakes:
1 coconut
1 coconut grater

Take one coconut and put in your hand or on a table so that the ends of the coconut is facing east and west. Take a strong, heavy knife and chop in the middle until the coconut cracks. Drain coconut juice in a glass. Separate the coconut in half and use the grater to grate the coconut meat. Stop grating when you see the brown bark. For best presentation, avoid mixing any brown coconut bark with the coconut flakes.
