Coconut - Coconut is high in saturated fat and is a good source of
potassium. Coconut milk and coconut cream are sometimes called for in recipes,
particularly in curried dishes. Coconut milk is made by combining equal parts
water and shredded fresh or desiccated coconut meat and simmering until foamy.
The mixture is then strained through CHEESECLOTH, squeezing as much of the
liquid as possible from the coconut meat. The coconut meat can be combined with
water again for a second, diluted batch of coconut milk. Coconut cream is made
in the same manner, but enriches the mix by using 1 part water to 4 parts
coconut. Milk can be substituted for water for an even richer result. Discard
the coconut meat after making these mixtures. Coconut milk and cream also come
canned and may sometimes be found frozen in Asian markets and some supermarkets.
Do not confuse sweetened "cream of coconut"-used mainly for desserts and mixed
drinks-with unsweetened coconut milk or cream.

pineapples with unpleasant odor or have any soft spot or area of darkness.
