Coconut - Milk Sherbet
What You Need:
  • The meat of 1 medium-sized (about 1½ pounds) fresh coconut
  • 2 cups warm milk
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ¼ cup water
  • A pinch of cream of tartar
  • 1 to 3 drops almond extract

  • How To Cook:
    1. Preheat the oven to 325°F. With a swivel-bladed peeler or a small, sharp knife, pare off the brown outer skin from a piece of coconut meat about 4 inches square. (Set the rest of the coconut aside unpeeled.)

    2. Grate the peeled piece coarsely with a hand grater and measure it. You should have about 1 cup. Spread the grated coconut in a thin layer in a large, shallow baking pan and, stirring occasionally; toast it in the middle of the oven for 15 to 20 minutes, or until light brown. Remove the coconut from the oven and set it aside.

    3. Meanwhile, following the directions in "Glossary & Cooking Tips", make coconut milk with the remaining coconut meat and 2 cups of warm milk.

    4. In a small, heavy saucepan, bring the sugar, water and cream of tartar to a boil over medium heat, stirring until the sugar dissolves and the syrup becomes completely clear, about 5minutes. Pour the syrup into a heatproof mixing bowl and let it cool to room temperature.

    5. Stir the toasted coconut and the coconut milk into the cooled syrup and flavor the sherbet with a drop of the almond extract. Taste and add more of the extract if desired. Pour the mixture into 2 ice-cube trays from which the dividers have been removed.

    6. Freeze the sherbet for 3 to 4 hours, stirring it every 30 minutes to break up the solid particles that will form on the bottom and sides of the tray. The finished sherbet should have a fine, snowy texture.

    7. To serve, spoon it into parfait glasses or dessert dishes.

    To Make: about 1 quart
