Greg and Jon are coconut appreciators. They discuss shredded coconut in candy, cookies, cakes and pies; coconut milk, which in baking can substitute for cow's milk; coconut water (in young coconuts); and coconut oil, with its high smoke point. Coconut oil, once thought a culprit in heart disease, has recently undergone a rehabilitation. How do you open a mature coconut? Greg recommends throwing it on the sidewalk or taking a hammer to it - but don't forget, you'll also be peeling off the skin.
