Sometimes recipes call for toasted coconut, which adds a lovely color, crunch and flavor. Have you ever read one and wondered how to toast coconut? Don’t stress, it’s quick and easy to do. Here’s the procedure. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Spread the desired amount of coconut in a shallow layer on a baking sheet. If you’ll be needing a lot, do it in batches.
Bake at 325 degrees for 10-15 minutes, but …
… stir every 3 minutes. Once it starts to toast, it will go quickly, so watch carefully.
Once you’ve achieved a golden color, remove from oven.
Allow to cool, and store in an air-tight container.
