Default How to Make Coconut Oil at Home



Here’s what went down in my kitchen:

1. I cracked 2 small coconuts (outside on concrete) and grated the meat using a spoon and a knife. I’m sure there is a easier method to gather the meat, but after two episodes of Moesha while doing this, my hands were out of commission for the rest of the night.

2. I blended the coconut meat and COLD water until the coconut pieces were fine.

3. I improvised and strained using this gadget. A cheese cloth is preferable.

4. In attempts to get as much milk as possible, I followed up by squeezing the coconut meat with my hands.

5. What’s left is coconut milk. After a few hours of sitting on the counter, the cream rose to the top. I placed the covered pot in the refrigerator overnight. This allowed the cream to slightly solidify.

6. Twenty-Four hours later I slice the cream to make the scooping and transferring the cream to another pot easier.

7. I simmered the cream for approximately 30 minutes on low, stirring often.

8. After a while, it looked like this. Once the remnants turned brown I turned off the stove and scooped the oil into a jar.
