  • About

Coconut milk and coconut cream are used a great deal in all the islands. If fresh coconut is not available, try to find packaged coconut cream. Failing this, use dried coconut, available packaged in supermarkets and from health-food stores. Health-food stores also carry tinned coconut milk, sometimes called coconut juice. The liquid inside the fresh coconut is called coconut water.
