Coconuts are common in tropical areas throughout the world. Unripe coconuts contain coconut milk, which is used in curries and soups. The nutmeats from coconuts can be found creamed, dried and fresh.
Coconut is used in sweet dishes, such as ice cream or rice pudding, and in savory dishes, both as an ingredient and as a garnish. Coconut oil is used in the production of baked goods and confectionery items, margarine, and as frying oil.
