Creamed Coconut (Block)
Creamed coconut is made from coconut. It adds a distinctive, rich coconut flavour and texture. It can be chopped into pieces and added to cooking, grated or made into milk or cream. Creamed coconut is a concentrated coconut extract without the water. Like coconut oil, it is hard at a low room temperature but varies in warmer temperatures.
- To make Coconut Cream: Break 200g Creamed Coconut into a bowl. Add approx 450ml of warm water and stir until dissolved. Now strain this through muslin or a fine sieve to leave coconut cream, ready to use.
- To make Coconut Milk: Add an extra 150ml water, and strain before use.
Adjust measurements as required for making smaller amounts.
- Size: 198g.
- Brand: Various.
(Please email before ordering if specific brand required).
Ingredients: 100% coconut.
This is lovely stuff, but I would suggest you look at your maths: _
Block of Coconut - 200ml
400g warm water - 450ml
cold water 150g - 150ml
Total - 800ml... or nearly 2 pints!!!
But I like to use it by the block, which I add untill it melts into the curry, giving that lucious silky-rich, coconut flavour. ;)"
