Expert Tips

  • Coconut milk is made from the flesh of coconut, not the thin liquid found inside the ripe fruit. It's also a very popular addition to curries.
  • Save yourself some time by grabbing a jar of grated gingerroot found in the grocery produce section. It's a quick way to add zest to your meals!
