coconut

Ever since that post about American coconut at the 10 kr. store I have been obsessed with getting some. I think the original poster was from Malmö so I was certain I would find it near me-- Helsingborg. Nope, after two different Göfab stores....all I find is that dried yucky Swedish stuff......but it was 2 for 10 kr. !!!!!! How disappointing!

Hey Neitha, if you ever find it, please let us all know where.
The poster that recommended the GoFab store did say that she thought the coconut might not be a "regular" item.
That's par for the course for us coconut seekers.
Thanks,
Cheryl

is there coconut milk at all there? I'm going to be an exchange student and i decided to bring some Tongan recipes as my "uncle" is from there and I think it would be cool to bring 2 cultures instead of just one. ... but i need coconut milk to make my favorite one. please say yes!!!

Yes! Most stores have a little asian section and there you can find coconut milk.

What is the difference between shredded coconut here and what we get in the US? I am not a coconut fan so I was bad and didn't pay attention to the info from the 'old' site. Embarassed

There was an old cookie recipe that my family has made for years that contained coconut and Hartshorn. It was hard to find that last ingredient unless you got lucky and a pharmacy had it. Bad thing was that it looked like a crack rock and you had to grind it up. Stuff smells like amonium. I know, doesn't sound appealing but the cookies are really good!! As luck has it I mentioned that cookie to my Swede and he recognized the Hartshorn and we found it at Coop. Now I want to make some cookies!!!

Can anyone educate me?? I'll gladly share the recipe or maybe even a few cookies for fika!!

I really, REALLY, want to bake those cookies. Does anyone know of where to get the soft coconut we Americans are used to or how to make the dry stuff they have here work?

Thanks!

Some people have said you can soak the swedish coconut it in coconut milk but I have never tried it personally. I think they have regular coconut at grays.

Coconut is one of the things I forgot to bring when I visited home last month. I might have to get someone to send me some because I am craving Hello Dolly Bars!

Thanks, I had a feeling that soaking it in coconut milk was probably the only option besides selling a kidney to buy some at Grays. I'll be in Stockholm Wednesday, anyone want to go coconut shopping? Razz

They are also called 7 layer bars or something like that I think.... I can post the exact recipe later if you want, but on the bottom layer is butter, then graham cracker crumbs (or digestives) then coconut, chocolate chips and condensed milk. Oh and pecans or some other nuts. And you bake it and it makes a tasty bar.
