Classed as a
fruit and frequently confused for being a nut, the coconut is actually a
one-seeded drupe. In Sanskrit, the coconut palm is known as kalpa vriksha - 'tree which
gives all that is necessary for living' because nearly all parts can be used,
the water, milk, flesh, sugar and oil. Even the husks and leaves are used as
materials in furnishings and decoration. Palm trees produce coconuts up to 13
times a year and although it takes a year for the coconuts to mature, a fully
blossomed tree can produce between 60-180 coconuts in a single harvest.
How it's made
Creamed coconut and coconut milk
are made in a way surprisingly akin to their dairy counterparts. Coconut flesh
(the white part) is grated and soaked in hot water. The coconut cream rises to
the top and can be skimmed off. The remaining liquid is squeezed through a
cheesecloth to extract a white liquid that is coconut milk. By repeating this
process, the coconut milk becomes thinner. The thicker version is used for
desserts and rich sauces. Thin coconut milk is used for cooking curries and
highly nutritious and rich in fibre, vitamins C, E, B1, B3, B5 and B6 and
minerals including iron, selenium, sodium, calcium, magnesium and phosphorous.
Unlike cow's milk, coconut milk is lactose free so can be used as a milk
substitute by those with lactose intolerance. It is a popular choice with vegans and makes a great base
for smoothies, milkshakes or as a dairy alternative in baking.
