    Canned coconut milk has it's uses, but I have to get it from the asian
    market. The local grossery store only has sweetened and I don't need
    the extra sugar.

    Guess we're fairly lucky then. A lot of our grocery stores stock the
    non-sweetened coconut milk. (Usually imported from Thailand). I make
    curries regularly and I like to use coconut milk for them.

    I like to keep a can on hand because it's one of those things that you never
    know you need until you don't have it. Know what I mean?

    I'm afraid I don't. I don't care for coconut milk. It's too cloying.

    Well different strokes, for different folks, as they say, I am sure
    you're not the only one. But in all honesty, until the MIL introduced
    me to curries that use coconut milk I'd never bought a can in my life.
    Now I prefer those curries. Furthermore as a child I hated stuff like
    coconut ice etc. or cookies that had coconut on them, nowadays I'll
    scarf them down. Shows you how your tastes can change over time.

    I've tried coconut-milk curries, and I just don't like them. A little
    grated coconut in things is ok. There's an Indian restaurant I go
    to which has a cabbage dish that has a liberal addition of grated
    (probably dried) coconut. I go for seconds to the buffet for that.

    And actually, I've got an Indonesian
    recipe that calls for coconut milk. I soak some dried coconut in hot
    water, squeeze it out, and use that. It's much less intrusive, but
    introduces
    a little coconutty goodness.

    You bet... pina colada smoothies... lotsa rum!. Actually cream of
    coconut is much better... I can't believe you can't get Coco Lopez
    (Goya) at any stupidmarket/grossery... doesn't Texas have any Spanish
    speaking folks?

    Well, that's just your particular taste, nothing wrong with that, IMHO.

    'If you like it, eat it - if you don't, don't eat it', has become my
    motto. There are some foods that I don't like too (e.g. cabbage -
    blech). However, look on the bright side - it just leaves more
    (whatever) for the folks that do ;-)

    I regularly do a Curried Chicken with coconut milk that my family loves.
    Heat up a pan, add a little oil and some curry paste, stir it around
    for a minute, add chopped onion and saute until tender, then add some
    seasoned (salt and pepper) chopped chicken breast and thin strips of
    red pepper and cook until done, add a cup of coconut milk, a nit of fish
    sauce and lemon juice and grated lemon rind and keep cooking until the
    sauce starts to thicken up and then add some fresh chopped cilantro.
    Serve on rice. It is delicious.
