Coconut juice or coconut water is the liquid inside a coconut. Coconut milk is produced by steeping grated coconut in hot water then straining; coconut cream is coconut milk cooked down until it thickens, or grated coconut steeped in hot milk instead of water.
- 3 eggs
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg
- 2 cups scalding milk
- 3/4 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 pie shell
- 1 cup shredded coconut
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Heat milk to scalding hot (do not boil).
Add to the milk all the ingredients except the eggs.
Beat the eggs; blend in the milk mixture.
Pour into a prepared pie shell. Bake 15 minutes at 450 degrees; then reduce heat to 350 degrees and bake an additional 15 minutes or until a knife inserted comes out clean.
Your custard may appear soft but as it cools the filling will set.
