How to make Coconut Milk or Cream:

While coconut milk is often available in your local market we find the superior quality of freshly prepared coconut cream justifies the process of making your own.

To make Coconut Milk:

To make coconut milk, pour 2 cups boiling water over the 4 cups grated fresh coconut meat, and allow the mixture to stand for 30 minutes. Strain mixture through a fine sieve, or double layer of cheesecloth that has been rinsed and wrung dry.

Squeeze Cheesecloth to remove all the milk.

To make Coconut Cream:

Allow the coconut milk to sit until it separates, and spoon the thickened cream off the top.

You can also make coconut milk with unsweetened dried shredded coconut, substituting 1/2 & /2 for the water.
