According to local tradition if you are making something like the lemon bread you want the coconut a bit drier so you use more mature coconut and grate, not shred. Other recipes might be "wetter" so you'd use young coconut and mash to add to fillings, etc. When I actually shred fresh coconut I use a very fine shred blade on my big FP or I shred by hand to get the thinnest possible results.

- Not if you use mature coconut meat. It should work perfectly [NT] - CathyZ from Kauai - 11:07pm on 07/10/15
- I'm definitely trying that next time. Can I freeze what I don't use? [NT] - cheezz - 11:10pm on 07/12/15
