How to Make Coconut Milk
After husking the coconut, it can be used to make coconut milk. In this post, I’ll be showing you all how to make coconut milk. Coconut milk is used in many of the trini recipes I have posted such as our favourite pelau or ochro rice. As you will notice it is a simple task in itself though time consuming if you are doing it the traditional way using a grater. Now, making coconut milk is a snap because of blenders which makes the process much, much easier. You could actually make coconut milk in less than 10 minutes using a blender. Anyhow, I won’t be long. Here’s coconut milk.
Coconut Milk Recipe
12 cups water
When removing the shell insert the knife between the coconut and the shell. Wag the knife along and the coconut should separate easily. Note also, do not use a sharp knife if this your first time doing this.
The knife shown is my preferred knife to use because it has a dull point and the short length gives me better leverage.
Use immediately or freeze for later use.
Use the coconut milk to create a number of local dishes.
