Coconut Milk

The Thai Home-Cooking book gives all sorts of instructions on the making of coconut milk. From hardest to easiest: I did #1 when I first made the Mussaman Nue, and it was a colossal pain in the ass, bending the sieve, and making a mess. I bought shredded coconut from the health food store. Canned has worked fine in subsequent tries (even though the book says to only use canned milk in emergencies). You can get cans at any oriental grocer, and at some supermarkets.
