What I've Learned: What the Canned Coconut Milk Lobby DOESN'T WANT YOU TO KNOW!!!

Canned coconut milk is vital for making a good curry or coconut rice (duh on the later), but it's sort of expensive, and I always forget to buy it. Turns out you can reconstitute shredded coconut, which is cheap as hell, and often in my pantry.

  1. Boil 2 cups of water
  2. Pour it into a blender with 2 cups of shredded coconut
  3. Whip it into a frenzied froth (hot things can burn you, especially when accelerated!)
  4. Strain it into whatever you're cooking

BONUS: You can generally squeeze another cup or two of water through the coconut mash, and still get pretty serviceable coconut milk.

DOUBLE BONUS: Your garbage can or compost bucket will smell *awesome* after you clean up.
