Homemade Coconut Cream

1 medium-size coconut
Liquid from coconut plus enough milk or light cream to total 1 quart

Open coconut, reserving liquid; grate meat moderately find and place in a large, heavy saucepan with liquid mixture. Heat slowly, stirring constantly, just until mixture boils. Remove from heat, cover, and cool to room temperature. Press through a double thickness of cheesecloth or a fine sieve, forcing out as much liquid as possible. Discard coconut pulp. Use milk in making curries, confections, desserts, and beverages. Store in refrigerator.

Yield: 1 quart

To make with Canned or Flaked Coconut:
Prepare as directed, substituting 3 (4-ounce) cans flaked or shredded coconut for the fresh and using 1 quart milk or light cream. (Note: If your Scottish nature rebels at discarding the coconut, spread out in a large shallow baking pan, drizzle lightly with melted butter, and toast, stirring often, 3/4 to 1 hour until crisp and golden. Flavor will be bland, but coconut can be used to garnish candies and fruit desserts or as a condiment for curry.)
