Do all of you buy the canned stuff? I would rather not buy it in a can, rather a carton or something. Also, do i need to worry about buying organic coconut milk? Out diet is probably 85% organic right now.
I've only seen it in cans, other than the cartons of watered-down stuff that's meant for drinking straight - but like Classic said, those are plastic-coated so probably no better (assuming that's your concern). I've definitely never seen it in a glass container.
You could make your own! There are really detailed instructions here. According to them, one coconut makes 2-3 cups of coconut milk, and it lasts 5-7 days refrigerated.

I agree. It brings you closer to what you eat and guarantees you know what the ingredients are. I also have always advocated for meat eaters to have the experience of butchering an animal they will eat so they can understand the process and circle of life.
Oh great, I was about to make a thread about coconut milk.
I just put some in a skillet, warmed it slightly, and doused my salad in it. And it tastes good! Better than using canola oil...and I can finally say farewell to using olive oil on my salads...euch. Good show.....i think
I've been using the stuff in a carton because it's re-closable. I pretty much just use it for coffee though. Once you open a can you gotta fiddle with it- I have 4 kids and a dissertation to write, so I'll use the convenient healthy foods when I can!
You can get organic for a good price on amazon if you sign up for automatic delivery. We have a case delivered every month, and you can delay it whenever if you're not done yet. I don't remember what it works out to, but it was cheaper than non-organic at sprouts. I've only ever seen it in cans unfortunately.
I agree that buying a coconut and making your own milk would be best. I have glass lock containers that will hold a large can and is perfectly sealed in the fridge. I have not made my own, but now I am interested in trying.
I have also used a glass jar which makes it easy to pour.
