Coconut Wraps (Yields 8)
Meat of 3 young coconuts
Dash of young coconut water of purified water
Blend young coconut meat in a high speed blender with water. Spread evenly onto two non-stick dehydrator liners and dehydrate for approximately 6 hours at 105 ºF, or until dry to the touch but still pliable. Check periodically to ensure wraps do not dry too long and become brittle. (If using a conventional oven please set the oven to lowest temperature, use a baking pan lined with parchment paper and spread the mixture evenly, you made need 2 baking pans with parchment paper, place in oven and check after 2.5 hours, then keep close watch until it become dry to touch but still pliable. You don’t want the wraps to dry to long and become brittle. Ovens quick more quickly than dehydrators. Remember to keep the oven door cracked and if you have an often fan please use that as well)
