A Word About Coconut
Malaysia is the motherland of the coconut palm. Though it now grows in parts of South America, India, Hawaii and throughout the Pacific Islands. This prolific tree yields thousands of coconuts over its approximately 70-year lifespan. Each coconut has several layers. A smooth, deep tan outer covering, a hard, dark brown, hairy husk with three indented “eyes” at one end. Followed by a thin brown skin, the creamy white coconut meat and at the center a thin opaque coconut juice. The smooth outer shell is usually removed before the coconut is exported.
