The next time you are stranded on a tropical island, forage for young coconuts to make jerky. Not likely, Mr. Crusoe? Well, you can now buy coconut jerky online. Cocoburg, based in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, makes this rather appealing vegan snack. The ribbons of coconut meat are seasoned with standard jerky flavorings like lime juice and black pepper. The jerky comes in three styles: Original, which has a subtle coconut flavor, is a trifle hot-sweet; Ginger Teriyaki is musky, salty and spicy; and Chili Lime is tart and delivers some fire: Cocoburg Coconut Jerky, $5.99 for 1.5 ounces at coconutjerky.net.
