Inspiration comes to me in different ways. Sometimes it’s a whole meal that I’m after, other times it’s just one ingredient that I crave and want to use a bunch of different ways. Coconut has been on my mind lately. I love cracking open a baby coconut, drinking the water, and scooping out the soft interior. It’s one of those time-consuming and rewarding food activities that I love.
Here are some coconut possibilities for today’s Saturday Short List:
