ᄋ cocoloco

coconut is an amazing thing
the water contains electrolytes which calm
an irritated digestive system
the oils within the flesh are 'good' oils
these strange nuts are a challenge to crack
but SO worth it, once you've got the knack of
getting the flesh out!

fresh coconut macaroons

you will need ....

250g fresh shredded coconut
2 egg white
¼ teaspoon cream of tartar
30g ground almonds
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
75g caster sugar
a pinch of salt

preheat the oven to 170〫c/ gas 3
line some baking sheets with greaseproof or
silicon paper
beat the egg whites until a little bubbly
then add the cream of tartar and beat until peaking
keep whisking and add the sugar a teaspoon at a time
until glossy and swirly
add vanilla, salt, almonds and coconut
fold gently until mixed
pile mounds of this mix onto the prepared trays
it should make about 8
{each mound about the size of a tangerine}
bake for 20 minutes until the edges start to brown
cool on a wire rack
we drizzled ours with melted dark chocolate
and they were divine!
