May be prepared the same as cocoanut milk, except that cold or lukewarm water is used instead of hot.
To raw nut meal (not butter) add one half more of water than you have of meal. Mix and beat well, strain through a thin cloth, squeeze as dry as possible. Let milk stand in a cool place and a very rich cream will rise which may be used for shortening pie crust, crackers and sticks, or in place of dairy cream in other ways. The skimmed milk will be suitable for soups, stews or gravies. It may be cooked before using if more convenient. The pulp also may be used in soups. It should be thoroughly cooked.
