Coconut Milk

To make fresh coconut milk you need to drain your coconut of juice and break it up into chunks. Then all you need to do is pour on hot (not boiling) water till it's generously covered and blend. Then strain it through muslin or cheese cloth and repeat. From one coconut no matter how much water you add you will get about one cup of cream, which can then be made into oil if you wish. The rest will be the milk which you can make richer or more dilute depending how much water you add.

Always pick a mature coconut to make coconut cream, the young ones will not separate in the muslin.
