|Making coconut water|
When I tracked him down we queued up a few youtube videos on the next steps of coconut processing since both of us couldn't really remember what to do. Go figure. Turns out I didn't need to shred the coconut, just cutting it into small pieces and putting it in a blender with water would have been sufficient enough. Too bad I wasn't paying too much attention to the video I had watched before cutting into the coconuts. Think of a cat stalking prey, pouncing on it, then freaking out, running off and then serenely sitting and licking it's paw. I always said in my next life I'd be a cat, I suppose I'm on my way.

|Coconut oil! Cha-ching!|
"Mazen, I burnt some of the coconut!"
"How? Didn't you leave the oven door open?"
"No, was I supposed to?"
"Yes, we read about it online!"
Slipped my mind. Regardless, I was able to take the unburnt coconut flakes and put them in a blender and blend them until they were fine. Then I made savory pancakes! From a whole coconut, to coconut water, to coconut oil, to coconut flour. How wonderful to create in the kitchen like that. Do you know how much those three coconuts cost? 30 cents. Do you know how much a bag of coconut flour or a jar of coconut oil costs? Upwards of $10. Pretty darn cool, if you ask me. Now get yourself some coconuts and start processing!
