This week we will continue our discussion about coconut.
Yes, coconut is an interesting product for me and other peoples that live on tropical area.
So many parts of this plant be an interesting part on our daily meal.
Now, we will talk about coconut water.
Coconut water have sweet and fresh taste.
The best taste is on immature stage from the green variety coconut, or we call it 'degan'.
The degree of sweetness will reduce through the degree of maturity.
And the volume of water also reduced, when the fruit getting mature.
Coconut water is special drink in our country, especially on the low land and beach areas.
The water is do refreshing during the hot day.
Coconut water is well known as isotonic cause have complete nutrient to recharge our body.
There are so many products here that made from coconut, such as isotonic drink that packed on the bottle or tetrapack package.
That product made from immature coconut, that has the best taste.
Coconut water with the soft flesh is our favorite, so refreshing.
The water from mature coconut has less taste and volume, but the water is still useful.
This water is used to make 'nata de coco' or coconut jelly.
This tough jelly is great for iced drink and other dishes.
We also use this water on cooking so many traditional food to improve the taste, and also make the meat or chicken become tender and spicy.
Although the taste of this water is so plain but so useful.
This water is well known as traditional shortening to make so many traditional cakes.
Will you throw away your coconut water?
