Coconut Custard

Summer/Fall 2006

  1. Squeeze the milk from several grated coconuts and strain into a pot. Let it boil on a high fire until oil is formed.
  2. Allow it to cool then pour the oil into another container. This will leave a thick layer which is called custard.
  3. Eat the custard by itself or season with pepper, salt and other herbs and spices as desired.

This is particularly delicious when eaten with fried plantain.
