Re: Coconut Milk
Zensilk - there are different types of Coconut Milk (even lite coco milk). I base my choice on if I can hear it sloshing around when I shake the can. I bought a can once that was nothing more than a solid mass of slimly white goo... gross is an understatement! It wouldn't break apart even in a blender - ended up tossing. I'm not sure if it was old, bad, or what - but it was unusable.
Don't just check the Chinese section, check for a Indian and look in the Mexican isle too. I'm buying some extra tonight along w/ a bottle of mexican Sangria & Apple soda. Should be great for base mixes!
