Ever wonder why there is such a difference in the price among vanilla extracts? Pure vanilla extract gets its flavor from extracting real vanilla beans and is more expensive. Imitation vanilla, on the other hand, is created from various artificial flavorings and therefore less costly.
Read coconut packages closely and you'll notice that there are two types available: flaked and shredded. Flaked coconut is cut into small pieces and is drier than shredded coconut. Either type works well in most recipes, but using shredded results in a more moist and chewy finished product.
Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient . Products and ingredient sources can change.
