I only see coconut milk supplied in tins, usually large tins, I sometimes need to open the tin and use a small amount to thicken an soup or something. So if I leave the rest in the fridge, does anyone know how long will it last?
Pink thanks, but that was for a specific Thai soup recipe that needed a bit of coconut milk added to it, so wasn't sure what to do with the rest. So its not a specific thickening agent that am looking for.

Where do you get a large can of it?? I've only seen the 13 oz cans!
I've refrigerated coconut milk for a week or more after shaking/stirring, then transferring to a quart jar, sealed tightly. If you only need a bit for a recipe, I'd freeze the remainder in the smaller amounts your recipe needs. And look into other ways to use it... it makes a decent substitute for heavy cream in coffee and I've had some pretty good coconut milk ice cream!
I pour mine into a glass jar and it keeps in the fridge almost a week(I usually use it up by then). I learned this when I used to use evaporated milk...it would go bad quickly in an opened can, but keep longer in a glass jar.
Yeah, I recently made coconut milk ice cubes when I realized I would never use up the rest of the can before it went bad. I've thrown out too much coconut milk as it is because a recipe only calls for a small amount, and I never get around to using the rest.
