Coconut Milk (an ingredient in many other recipes)
One coconut yields about 1 pound of fresh meat, enough to make about 3/4 cup of thick milk plus about 3 cups of thin milk.
To make milk, pierce the three small eyes in the end of the shell, drain and reserve the water. Crack the shell, peel off the outer rind and grate the white meat. Place it in a double boiler and warm gently. When hot add 1/2 cup of warm water. Press this thick milk thru a fine sieve or cheesecloth.
To make thin milk combine the grated residue, drained coconut water, and enough additional warm water to make about three cups. Extract the thin milk as above.
