EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Toasting the coconut adds more flavor. Bake in an ungreased shallow pan at 350ºF for 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden brown.

Buy the tropical fruit in the canned fruit aisle at your grocery store. These individual cups of fruit come in packages of four.
