WHERE I BUY BULK COCONUT FLAKES: https://www.azurestandard.com/
Azure Standard serves mostly the West Coast, including AK. You have to sign up to be able to see the prices of the items they have. They NEVER email me unless I have purchased something, so don’t be afraid to sign up. Finding a drop off location usually requires a call into Azure, and can be tricky, but is well worth it if you even want to buy in bulk once a year (and have to drive a bit).
2 cups unsweetened flaked, coconut
4 cups boiling water
Add coconut flakes to blender and pour boiling water over the coconut. Allow coconut to steep in water for about 5 minutes.
Blend for exactly 1 minute.
Strain using a nut bag.
Allow to cool, and wring out bag of coconut until it is as dry as possible.
Chill or use immediately.
Please note that the fat will harden on top of the coconut milk. Re-heat and mix if you’d like a coconut milk that is more of a canned coconut milk consistency. Or, remove coconut cream from the top of the refrigerated coconut milk, let soften on counter slightly and use in place of whipped cream.
