Just Coconut Chunks

August 11, 2017 in Category: What's New

While coconut is abundant in tropical climes, most countries that cultivate copious coconut crops aren’t so big into freezing. We found a willing partner, though, in the Philippines, and though we quickly discovered they hadn’t made this product for anyone else, that just made us all the more eager to get it into our freezers. Trader Joe’s Just Coconut Chunks lives up to that name. Coconut is the sole ingredient in each bag...

Cultured Coconut Milk

“What in the world is Cultured Coconut Milk?” would not be a strange or silly question to ask. You see, we can’t technically call it Coconut Yogurt because it’s made with coconut “milk”—which isn’t milk in the strict sense of the word.

If you want to keep the coffee as concentrated as possible, you can use it to make...

The versatility of the Cocos nucifera (the coconut tree) cannot be overstated. It produces an impressive number of coconut-based products with varied, but important, uses: coconut meat and coconut milk for cooking, coconut water for hydration, coconut sugar for baking… impressive, indeed. Another lesser known (but not for long) member of the coconut clan is the sap of the coconut blossom. When fermented, this sap forms a savory, amino-rich sauce with...

Organic King Coconut Water

Sri Lanka is known in some circles as the “capital of coconuts,” as its residents purportedly boast the highest consumption of coconut in the world. In addition to drinking, the coconut is used for cooking, fiber production… even roofing! The most prized variety on the island is the King coconut, known for its oil content and clean, crisp taste. It is this specific variety that is used to fill each container of Trader Joe’s Organic King Coconut Water. Organically grown without the use of...
