1 fresh coconut
1 cup boiling water

  1. Grate the coconut. Pour boiling water over and leave for 30 minutes.
  2. Put it in muslin cloth and squeeze out.
  3. This first pressing produces coconut cream, which after several hours of refrigeration acquires the density of double cream.
  4. You can keep the grated coconut to make coconut milk.

  1. Carefully grate only the white part of the coconut avoiding the brown skin as it will change the colour of the cream.
