Shredded Coconut

Shredded coconut is a popular ingredient in many sweet and savory dishes. It is made by grating the flesh of mature coconuts, which are the large, white fruits produced by the coconut palm tree. The resulting shreds are then dried, resulting in a flakes that range in size from coarse to fine.

Shredded coconut has a sweet, creamy flavor and a chewy texture. It is often used as a topping or filling for cakes, pies, and other desserts. It can also be added to curries, rice dishes, and other savory dishes for flavor and texture.
