Default Coconut Juice, Coconut Milk

Coconut Juice, Coconut Milk

Coconut juice and coconut milk are not the same thing.

Coconut juice (also called coconut water, or agua de coco) is the liquid
found inside a green (unripe) coconut, which diminishes as the coconut
ripens. Coconut juice is a refreshing beverage. It is consumed
right-out-of-the-coconut in tropical Africa; you pick your coconut from
the
street vendor's pile, he whacks the top off it with a machete and hands it
to you. Canned coconut juice can be found in grocery stores. It is not
used
in cooking.

Coconut milk is made from the meat of the ripened coconut. To make thick
coconut milk: In a glass bowl, combine equal parts near-boiling water and
coconut meat (fresh or dried, shredded or flaked -- if using packaged
coconut meat, unsweetened). Stir well and allow the mixture to stand for
up
to an hour. Squeeze the mixture very tightly in your hands, or run it
through a blender or food processor. Strain everything through a
cheesecloth, using the cloth to wring all liquid from the coconut meat.
Repeat the process, re-using the same coconut meat to make thin coconut
milk, then throw away the coconut meat.

If using canned unsweetened coconut milk: Shake the can before opening.
Divide the contents of the can into two parts, placing about two-thirds of
the can's contents in one measuring cup and the remaining one-third in the
other. Add enough warm water to each to make two cups. The first is the
"thick", the second is the "thin".
