Coconut Milk

Serves: 5


1 coconut, hard, ripe
2 cups water, boiling


1. Prepare the coconut, through removing the brown skin. Break the large pieces into 1- to 2-inch pieces.

2. Place the coconut, reserved coconut water, and boiling water in a blender and blend for 3 minutes. You may need to work in two or three batches to reduce the risk of overflow. Let the mixture stand for 5 minutes, then pour it through a fine-meshed strainer or a strainer lined with several layers of dampened cheesecloth. Twist the cheesecloth tightly to extract as much milk as possible. Store coconut milk, covered, in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. It can also be frozen for up to 1 month.

Makes 2 to 3 cups
