Just opened a 14oz can of coconut milk for a recipe using 2-3 Tablespoons.
What can I do with the leftover? How long will it last in the fridge? Can I freeze it?
it also will last for a couple weeks at least if you switch it into a tupperware.
i like mixing a bit into my yogurt and berries.
Coconut milk is used in a lot of curries from the Indian subcontinent.
My coconut milk never lasts that long simply because I cook a lot of curries - I almost always have an opened container of coconut milk in the fridge. If yours smells or tastes rancid, toss it.
Freeze in an ice cube tray. 2-3 Tblsp. of coconut milk comes up quite frequently in my kitchen. I just open a can and dispense into the tray on purpose!
