Macaroons, not macarons.
A couple of days ago I received my two jars of creamed coconut I ordered from Coconut Matter (they have an online shop, proudly made in Hong Kong !). This thing is seriously addictive and I couldn’t be happier to have a reliable supplier (I know where you live Diane !). Running out of it is not an option!
Creamed coconut (or coconut butter, or coconut manna, same same but different names) is a great alternative for those like me who have nut allergies. I used to be strongly allergic to almonds and hazelnuts – “used to” because now I have bad reactions only at random. I haven’t quite figured out yet the factor that makes my body so upset so until I find out, I will put the blame on the stars that are not aligned. No almond butter for me then, and I never realized I was missing out on some serious goodness until I tried creamed coconut.
