Looking for Heart of Coconut Palm

maggieg | Jul 12, 2011 09:29 AM

I am trying to find Heart of Coconut Palm (a.k.a Coconut Palm Heart). This is not to be confused with Heart of Palm - the kind you find as small white spears in the grocery store. Heart of Coconut Palm is from the coconut palm tree that is stripped for its 'heart'. I had it in a curry in Thailand and fell in love with the flavor and texture. There is no substitute.
I can find young coconuts and harvisted coconuts at the Southeast Asian market and the regular market but have been unable - even online - to find the 'heart'.
Anyone else know something...anything?
Thanks!!
