Coconut Milk

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?

    1. 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.

      1. 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.

        1. I freeze it. It can be frozen for quiet long.

          1. 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!
