Just completed the manuscript for "Raising Cattle", for Hatherleigh Press (Random House distribution).
It is available for pre order.
There are 2, full coconut palms on my parent's property, and the ripe ones are dropping daily! So, we were processing.
Once we got the coconuts open, using a machete, hammer and wedge, the meat itself was pretty easy to remove from the shell.
Of course, the food processor was acting up, so I used the immersion blender and attachment to grate the coconut. In lieu of drying, it was placed in plastic sandwich bags, 1 pre measured cup per bag, and placed in the freezer.
Oh yes....the fresh, home grown coconut is delicious!
