Thai One On: A good substitute for milk in some meat recipes is coconut milk. In fact, this has led us to explore some wonderful Thai recipes. Kosher versions of the canned stuff can be hard to find. No matter, you make your own from, surprise, a coconut. Coconut milk for cooking is not the clear stuff you get when you first open a coconut. Save that for your Mai Tai. It's the cocunut meat, ground up, soaked with boiling water, and run through cheesecloth and/or a sieve. There are more detailed recipes on the web, but the process is reasonably simple.
