How to make it

  • You crack the coconut in half (over the sink please) and sitting on your grater on a chair or stool you grate out the meat into a large bowl with medium firm rounded strokes. You want it finely grated not in chunks. Don’t get in a hurry.
  • • Once you have the grated coconut you need a piece of clean cloth about 18” on a side.
  • • Lay the cloth on the table and put a handful or two of the grated coconut on the cloth near the edge closest to you.
  • • Roll up the cloth so the grated coconut forms a lump in the middle and squeeze as much juice as you can out of it into the bowl with the grated coconut in it.
  • • Empty the squeezed coconut out of the cloth into a separate container for disposal or a snack and put in a new batch of fresh grated coconut.
  • • Repeat until all coconut is squeezed.
  • Now you have fresh, rich Peepee like you’ll never get from a can. It is a bit of work but gets easier after a few tries and you’ll never go back to canned. The Peepee, or anything you use it on or in, will last three to four days in the fridge, depending on how long the coconuts you use have been off the tree.

    Nicely done. ~ I grew up in the tropics, so we did a lot with coconuts.

    To GET EVEN MORE COCO "PEEPEE": after squeezing, collect gratings in a blender. Add very hot water to cover. Blend, then strain. You now have a lighter (& less fatty, thus less pronounced coconut flavor)) "cream". You can do this a 3rd time, or could even do the 1st processing, but w/ minimal hot water). These lighter coconut creams are fine for:

    soups, like the popular Thai soup, Tom Kha >>>>>>>

    marinades >>>>>>>

    sauces, like the peanut sauces to accompany satay (aka sate ) >>>>>>> (use instead of water in this --->) >>>>>>> >>>>>>>

    etc, etc!
