Has anybody had this stuff?! It's unbelievably good! I think one box could carry you for an entire day's food supply. And it's good, did I mention that?
I just switched from coconut milk to creamed coconut: great flavor!
Started PB late 2008, lost 50 lbs by late 2009. Have been plateaued, but that thing may just be biting the dust: more on that later.
One of my staples. Mine cost £0.27 from tesco. People pay loads for coconut butter when this is the same. It even has a layer of precious oil which you can separate and use for frying.
I use mine to make cheap coconut milk and cream, as a cheese alternative, in desserts, curry sauces, in smoothies, and the best is using instead of your regular coconut flour.... blend it with eggs to make a batter and it comes out soft and spongy when you fry pancakes or bread alternatives
I don't know how you could possibly cook with it! It goes straight into my mouth.
The creamed coconut that I recently bought is in a box, and the instructions state to add water.
Questions: 1) is this the same as what you're talking about above? 2) If so; then does adding the water make this into a gelatin-like material or a paste or what exactly?
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
1) yer they do recomend adding boiling water to turn it into coconut milk/cream but this is just their guideline. The more water you add the more it goes from cream/paste to milk. I like to make a really thick cream as it keeps longer in the fridge, and you can always add more water later.
