COCONUT JERKY! 30 Jun 2014
This recipe leaves Mars begging (above) for more. It's meat and hormone-free and tastes just like candy. I use Exotic Superfoods young coconut meat, but you can DIY and purchase 5-6 young coconuts and extract the meat utilizing a Coco Jack.
If you like it savory…
Ingredients: 1 half bag of Exotic Superfoods young coconut meat (you can buy it by the single, $10 bag at Whole Foods) 1/2 cup of Braggs or Tamari, 1tsp olive oil & 1tbsp nutritional yeast
If you like it sweet…
Ingredients: 1 half bag of Exotic Superfoods young coconut meat, 1 tbsp coconut sugar & coconut oil spray
Directions: Slice coconut meat into thin strips and then dehydrate for 4-6 hours at 118 degrees. If you don’t have a dehydrator, set your oven at its lowest temperature, place the coconut on a rack and place a wooden spoon in the oven door to keep it slightly open. The surface should feel dry, but you want it to still be chewy on the inside.
