  • But seriously, use the coconut milk for ice cream!
    Or Coconut Ginger Candy Drops

    2 cups peeled fresh coconut, cut into 1/4" cubes
    2 cups packed brown surgar
    1/4 cup water
    2 Tbl grated fresh ginger
    1/2 tsp ground allspice
    1/4 cup water

    Spray large rimmed baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray. Combine coconut and all remaining ingredients in heavy medium saucepan. Stir mixture over medium heat until sugar dissolves and mixture comes to a boil (usually in candy recipes, they tell you to wash down any sugar crystals adhering to the pan sides at this point, which I'm guessing is why the water is in 2 separate measurements, although the BA instructions don't mention that). Attach candy thermometer to side of pain and boil until mixture thickens and temp registers 295, stirring occasionally, about 15 mins. Remove pan from heat. Working quickly, drop about 2 Tbl mixture for each candy onto prepared

  • I would use some of the coconut in a smoothie or maybe some of the juice of it. There are Hawaiian dishes that use coconut.
