COCONUT JERKY! 30 Jun 2014

Jerky

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.

I am intrigued, I can't wait to try it! For others who may be interested but also price conscious: the price of the recommended raw coconut through the Exotic Superfoods website is 100$ for 11, 1 lb. bags. This is not obvious through the Amazon link, and I have no idea what ordering through Amazon would yield. But that seems, (though still expensive), much more reasonable than 100$ for less than a single coconut.

Thanks for the cocoJack link, it looks like such fun. I've just ordered two!

How long and at what temperature do you bake it? Looks so yummy!
