Coconut Chunks

Bowl of concunut chunks

Dehydrated coconut makes a nice chewy, squeaky snack. If you dehydrate a little further, it becomes quite crunchy.  By making it yourself, you can avoid the bleach and preservatives that are used in commercial production.

Ingredients: 

Coconut

Directions: 

Remove liquid from the coconut before breaking it apart.  Find a soft eye and push a screwdriver through to the center and drain liquid
Tap the seam the runs between the eyes to break apart & remove outer shell
Use a potato peeler to peell off the inner husk
Cut into 1/4 - 3/8 inch slices
Place on dehydrator trays
Dehydrate at 130° for 8 - 10 hours until dry

See WikiHow for more options on how to open a coconut.

I have been dehydrating coconut like this for a while now. It is so easy and is yummy. When you get coconuts for free it is a very cheap snack!! Never buying them again.
