How long does coconut last?

I know it doesnt last long but how will I know?

Fresh and open? if so about 5 days in the fridge before it will go rancid.

shawkt, May 12, 4:05am
Its not fresh just shredded stuff from the supermarket in a bag and opened.

Taste it.
If it's not rancid, it's useable!

maxwell. inc... am not looking for you ;)But just saw your name and thought I'd alert you to Nat Radio right now about to talk on the panel about Low Carbing (after they've talked about the Police... )

Cheers ellie. . but I dont own a radio. thanks anyway

#2 shredded stuff is fine will last YEARS in a well sealed container.

You didn't miss anything - it was all about an ultra-extreme version practised by competitive body-builders.

Thanks anyway Elliehen.

ah yes. . nothing relevant to the real world then - I don't fancy having "guns" the size of Sherman tanks.

Just getting back to coconut - my creamed coconut isn't going to last long Maxwell! What lovely stuff that is.

maxwell.inc, May 12, 4:55am
yeah I am down to half a jar. . I keep forgetting to eat my oil. . after a few days my tummy reminds me!

OOPS! Spoke too soon... just before 5pm a dietician, Sarah Hanrahan came on and talked about the movement in the USA but said little more than that there were still two sides to the discussion and two sets of scientific argument and NZ guidelines were not about to be changed anytime soon...

Now back to coconut... :)

Told years ago to keep in an uncovered container. Mine has never gone 'off'

I keep some of it in freezer

I always store my dessicated coconut in a screw top container in the fridge
