An A to Z guide to choosing, storing, preparing, and cooking fresh produce and recipe ingredients.

  • How to Choose Coconut Milk
    Canned coconut milk comes in light (or low-fat) and regular versions. Look for it in Asian markets or the international section of your supermarket.

  • How to Store Coconut Milk
    Canned coconut milk can be stored in the pantry for up to 2 years; when opened, it keeps in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. Fresh coconut milk, made from boiling water that has been poured over grated coconut meat, then strained, keeps for up to 2 days in the refrigerator.

    How to Prepare Coconut Milk
    You can reduce the fat (and calories) in a can of regular coconut milk by letting it settle, then skimming and discarding some of the thick cream off the top.

  • How to Use Coconut Milk
    Use coconut milk to balance spicy curries or seafood-based stews.
