Sometimes recipes call for toasted coconut, which adds a lovely color, crunch and flavor. 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.
