fresh young coconut, drained with meat removed and chopped
2 (12 fluid ounce) cans
1 (14 ounce) can
sweetened condensed milk
I did not have a fresh coconut so I used 2 cups of the packaged brand, I think next time I would use a little less, however this is a wonderful creamy coconut custard and it is going to be very hard to stay away from, I tried it right out of the oven. Great tasting, will be making it again.
We made this over the holiday and it was a hit for my family... we made one with pie crust and one without we like it both but like the best with the crust... will be making this again...
My 2 year old and I love to drink the coconut water which is so incredibly healthy. I was looking for something to make with the fresh coconut meat. If you aren't familiar with young coconuts search youtube for "how to open a young coconut." Not only is it interesting to watch but important to know how to open them correctly without injuring yourself or spilling the coconut water. I use a simple chef's knife to open them. Back to the recipe, I chopped the fresh coconut in the food processor to get the pieces uniform. Mine took longer to cook but I think it's because I didn't use hot water in the water bath which I will definitely do next time. This dish does not taste too eggy, too coconutty, or too sweet. It's a perfect balance of flavors. Very easy to make. I will make this dish often. Thank you for a great recipe!
