My Baker's sweetened coconut is not moist after being stored in the refrigerator. How can it be remoistened?
Here's a link from eHow that walks through how to moisten coconut flakes: http://www.ehow.com/how_8278347_moisten-dry-coconut-flakes.html
Although you are working with sweetened coconut that was once moist, this approach may still work. They recommend you do the following:
- Put a pan of water on the stove and bring it to a boil
- Place a colander over the pan and put the coconut in the colander
- Let the coconut absorb the steam for a few minutes and then pull the coconut off and pat dry it with a towel
