Coconut (SAMOA) - each
PRODUCT OF SAMOA
The distinctive flavor of the Coconuts makes it a very popular food, and a wide range of things are made with this plant, from palm wine to pie. The water found inside the shell is not the same thing as coconut milk, a popular creamy product which is actually made with the flesh of the fruit. Coconut water is crisp, cool, and refreshing, and it is often used in drinks in tropical regions. It is also high in vitamins and minerals, making it popular with the health food community. The milk is made by grating the flesh, soaking it in hot water, and squeezing it, extracting a very rich, dense white liquid that is very high in protein and fat.
