SHARE Ingredient Challenge: Coconut

Coconuts are one of the few ingredients that immediately conjure images of palm trees, and by extension, warm, tropical days spent sipping the refreshing water out of the cavity of their tough shells. Not sure people realize there’s young coconut, and the water inside, but the milk we often see in Thai restaurants comes from pressing on the grated flesh from the inside of the more mature coconut.
