Community Picks Recipe Testing -- Coconut

May 24, 2013

It's that time again -- help us pick the contest finalists for Your Best Coconut!

Any Food52 member is welcome to help us test our Community Pick candidates, so go call dibs on the recipe you'd like to test that is in the list below! We'd love to see some new testers in the mix -- remember, we're accepting up to 3 testers per recipe. And, if the recipe is worthy of a Community Pick, we'll publish the best headnote, so make your notes count! Don't forget to email us your headnote (no more than 100 words) to [email protected] by next Wednesday at 5pm (EST).

When you’ve figured out which recipes are calling your name, in order to sign up, all you have to do is follow the link to that recipe’s page, and on the left-hand side, you’ll see a “Test This Recipe” button. Your job is easy: just click the button, and you’ll receive a confirmation email that officially crowns you a Food52 community tester. If for some reason you decide you cannot test, simply press the button again, and your name will be removed from the list. Act fast -- this button will disappear on the Tuesday before your testing notes are due. 

We'll collect your comments, name the finalists and official Community Picks and publish the best headnote for each Community Pick (with credit, of course!). If the recipe you test isn't chosen as a Community Pick, please feel free to leave your testing notes in the recipe's comments section. Constructive criticism is always encouraged!

Happy Testing!

My recipe for Kaya is probably a pretty foreign idea to most peopl, I hope it doesn't put people off! :) Thanks to everyone who's taking the time to try these recipes!

Congrats, everyone! Thanks for nominating my Baked Coconut Tofu with Spiced Coconut Rice. I didn't realize how much I love coconut until I saw all of these wonderfully varied entries. I plan to work my way through all of them!

Trying to figure out how I can test at least one of these great recipes this weekend with all the holiday hoopla going on... LOVE coconut and cannot wait to make these and so many more of the entries. Thanks for picking my Coconut Pound Cake! :)

If you click on the perfect coconut cupcakes recipe link you will find a "test this recipe" button at the bottom of the recipe instructions. Clicking the button signs you up to test.
