How to make Coconut Milk and Coconut Oil

I have got five dried coconut from my neighbour and not quite know what to do, except to go and get coconut delicacies and coconut crazy, and my utmost best to make coconut milk and coconut oil, to share with my friends.

Coconut Milk

1 large dried coconut

Soak grated, dried coconut or desiccated coconut in hot water; allow to rest for a while to cool. Strain in a fine sieve or place in muslin bag and squeeze out milk. This makes a much thinner cream.

Coconut Oil

1 large dried coconut

Extract coconut milk using a little hot water as possible. Leave milk to stand overnight, cream will rise to the top. Remove cream and cook it in a heavy pan on high heat until oil is clear; sediment will collect in the bottom of pan. Remove from heat and strain; pour in clean bottles.
