Opening coconuts, grating, freezing and toasting coconut flesh. Freezing coconut water.
- Whole coconuts
Moderate Salicylates, Moderate Amines, Low Glutamates
You can just smash open the coconut, but I find this method requires a lot less brute strength and it's easier to get the shell off the flesh. The cooking also doesn't affect the taste or texture of the coconut flesh.
I don't know what the amine and salicylate content of coconut water is, but the flesh develops from the water so I suspect it is at least moderate. I use it in small amounts (1 ice cube) to add flavouring to stir fries and creamy dishes.
