AGUA DE COCO


The coconut arrived from Asia via the Caribbean Islands, Brazil, and Mexico.

In 1492, Cristóbal Colón had encountered the coconut in El Salvador, Central America, Cuba, The Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico.

Here is the récipe that the navigators had created, and had come by way of California, Texas and Mexico 1515.

ABSOLUTELY DELIGHTFUL THIS TIME OF YEAR ...

If you reside in Florida, or California, you can encounter Green coconuts as well ...

Have a wonderful summer.

I do love coconut in all forms and shapes. On our local Masterchef they had to do a dish with coconut as the star and really missed the opportunity for most of them.
I like to imagine what I would have made in their stead and doing a coconut water palet cleanser for a deconstructed coconut ice was forefront of my mind

Add to Taste,

I would love both ... the traditional pre hispanic and the XXI Adrià style ...

I am going to post a photo of the traditional Mexican one ...

Thanks for the contribution,
Margi.
