Dear Barbara: I was making a dish last weekend that called for shredded coconut. I knew I had some, but I haven’t used it for awhile. It was dry and a bit stale. Is there someway I could have refreshed the coconut instead of tossing it out? My husband really hates it when he sees me throwing out food! — Max from Lodi

Dear Max: If it is really old, I would throw it away, but if it is just a bit dry and stale, it is savable. You can soak it in a little milk, which I find to be a bit messy, and then drain it and lightly pat it dry, or you can put the shredded coconut in a sieve and hold it over a pan of boiling water so that it gets the steam. Don’t put it in the water, just hold it over the top and mix up your coconut a bit until moistened to your liking.
