The Pantry Quiz #54

Coconut milk

True or false?

Without coconut milk, I couldn't make some of my favorite Thai and Indian curries, so I always have a few cans in the pantry. Which of the following statements about coconut milk are true?

1. Coconut milk is the liquid you find inside a coconut when you split it open.
2. Coconut milk is low in saturated fat.
3. Coconut milk is dairy-free.
4. A piña colada cocktail is made with coconut milk, rum and pineapple juice.


Please leave your answer in the comments, and let us know whether you have this ingredient in your pantry.

[Last week's answer: False. You can make an oil-and-acid based salad dressing without vinegar, but to be called a vinaigrette, the dressing must contain vinegar.]
