Toasting coconut is a simple task.  Set the oven to 350 degrees and allow it to preheat.  Spread the coconut out evenly on a cookie sheet.  Toast for 12 minutes or until the coconut becomes a golden brown.  Be sure to stir the coconut often so that it browns evenly.  Toasted coconut can be used with candy, as a topping for fruit salads or as a garnish on cakes or cupcakes.  It can be stored in an airtight jar for up to 1 week.
