About Coconut milk

Wikipedia Article About Coconut milk on Wikipedia

Coconut milk is a sweet, milky white cooking base derived from the meat of a mature coconut. The colour and rich taste of the milk can be attributed to the high coconut oil content and coconut sugars. The term "coconut milk" does not refer to the watery liquid found inside the nut; this is called "coconut water" or "coconut juice."

Two grades of coconut milk exist: thick and thin. Thick coconut milk is prepared by directly squeezing grated coconut meat through cheesecloth. The squeezed coconut meat is then soaked in warm water and squeezed a second or third time for thin coconut milk. Thick milk is used mainly to make desserts and rich, dry sauces. Thin milk is used for soups and general cooking. This distinction is usually not made in western nations since fresh coconut milk is usually not produced, and most consumers buy coconut milk in cans. Manufacturers of canned coconut milk typically combine the thin and thick squeezes, with the addition of water to maintain a consistent product between batches.

Coconut milk is a common ingredient in many tropical cuisines, most notably that of Southeast Asia (especially Thai, Singaporean. Malaysian, and Sri Lankan), West African, West Indian, and Polynesian cuisines. Coconut milk can usually be found in the Asian food sections of supermarkets either frozen or canned. Frozen coconut milk tends to stay fresh longer, which is important in dishes where the coconut flavor is not competing with curries and other spicy dishes.

Depending on the brand and age of the milk itself, a thicker, more paste-like consistency floats to the top of the can, and is sometimes separated and used in recipes that require coconut cream rather than coconut milk. Shaking the can prior to opening will even it out to a cream-like thickness.

Coconut milk is the base of most Thai curries. To make the curry sauce, the coconut milk is first cooked over fairly high heat to break down the milk and cream and allow the oil to separate. The curry paste is then added, as well as any other seasonings, meats, vegetables and garnishes.

Open cans of coconut milk must be refrigerated, and are usually good for a few days. Never leave an open can at room temperature, as the milk can sour and spoil easily.

From the RuneScape Wiki, the wiki for all things RuneScape

Coconut milk is an ingredient for several high-level Herblore potions. Players must make it themselves, as it is not sold in stores.

It is needed to make extra strong anti-poison potions, extra strong weapon poison, super strong anti-poison potion, and super strong weapon poison.

It is not a secondary ingredient to potions, as limpwurt root and red spider's eggs are. Rather, it replaces the water in the water-filled vial with coconut milk. Players must add a herb and a secondary ingredient to this, as with other potions.

To obtain coconuts, players can grow them on palm trees using the Farming skill, buy them from other players, or retrieve them from the nature impling in the Impetuous Impulses minigame.

Players must crack coconuts open with a hammer, and then use the open coconut on a vial, to obtain a vial full of coconut milk and a coconut shell.

Filling the empty vials must be done individually, with repeated bank stops. Neither the vials nor the coconuts are stackable.

A good method is to start with 14 empty vials and 14 "Coconut (open)". Then arrange them in alternating columns of vials and coconuts. This makes filling vials a lot easier (less mouse movement).

After the filling, store all coconut milk and retrieve all vials. Finally, store all coconut shells and retrieve all coconut (open).
