It may not have to be refrigerated after opening - but it will probably retain it's moisture and flavor better if it is. If the bag recommends refrigerating after opening, then do so.

Can you make desiccated coconut out of flaked coconut?

Yes, Desiccated Coconut can be make from bagged coconut.Here's how.Desiccated coconutIngredients and supplies.* Bag of shredded coconut or 1 fresh coconut* Baking sheet* Fine grater* Spoon* Bowl* OvenStep 2:Prepare the coconut. If you have a bag of shredded coconut, then skip to step two. If not, you need to prepare the coconut before you can dry it. To do so, take a fresh coconut. Cut in half. Remove the husk and pour out the coconut milk from the center. Use the fine grater to grate or shred the coconut so you have small pieces.Step 3:Arrange the shredded coconut onto a baking sheet. You must spread a thin layer of loosely stacked coconut on the baking sheet. Do not clump or press together as that will keep the coconut from drying.Step 4:Heat the oven to 250 degrees then place the coconut pan inside. Bake on this low heat for five to ten minutes. The timing of this depends greatly on how moist the coconut was to begin with and how humid your climate is so you need to pay attention and check the coconut often. You aren't cooking the coconut, just drying it out a bit. Once dry it should be brittle to the touch instead of creamy. Remove from the oven.Step 5:Transfer the coconut to a bowl. If your recipe calls for the desiccated coconut to be shredded then you have what you need. Some recipes call for the coconut to be dusted on like a powder. For those recipes you will need to go one additional step forward.Transfer the coconut to a bowl. If you require a fine coconut powder for some particular recipes, then crush the coconut shreds using a spoon against the side of the bowl. Or you can grind the dried coconut in a food processor to obtain a coarse or fine powder.Desiccated coconut is the best way to get all the nutritional benefits of coconut all year round. So make various delightful recipes using desiccated coconut and enjoy the goodness of coconut!
