*Tip

To toast whole nuts or large pieces, spread them in a shallow pan. Bake them in a 350°F oven for 5 to 10 minutes, shaking the pan once or twice. Toast coconut in the same way, but watch it closely to avoid burning it. Toast finely chopped or ground nuts or sesame seeds in a dry skillet over medium heat. Stir often so they don't burn.
