HELOISE: Gently pat down coconut when measuring
Dear Heloise: How do you measure coconut? Tightly packed in the measuring cup, like brown sugar; or loosely measured, like flour and sugar? -- Patrick C., Colville, Wash.
Good question, Patrick! Grated or flaked coconut should be lightly added to a measuring cup, then gently patted down. Add more if needed, and level off the top.
