Haupia # 1

1 can (12 oz) frozen coconut milk, thawed
5 tablespoons sugar
5 tablespoons cornstarch
1 1/2 cups water (I have made a notation to try milk next time)

Put coconut milk into a saucepan and bring to a boil on low heat. In a bowl, combine sugar and cornstarch. Add water; blending well. Add cornstarch mixture to coconut milk. Stirring frequently with a whisk, cook over medium heat until mixture thickens. Continue cooking until mixture starts to get translucent, and leaves the sides of the pan.

Pour into an 8 x 8 inch pan. Chill until firm. Cut into 2 inch squares. Makes 16 servings.

Note: I got this recipe from the Hawaiin Electric Company.

Haupia #2

1 1/2 cup water
1 1/2 cup coconut milk, fresh or canned (3 cups whole milk with 1 tsp. coconut extract may be substituted for coconut milk and water
1/2 cup plus 2 Tablespoons cornstarch
1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoons sugar (or to taste)

In medium saucepan, combine all ingredients. Mix well to dissolve cornstarch. Place on low heat and cook until thick, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and pour into 8 x 8 inch square pan. Chill until thick. Cut into squares. Makes 12 pieces.

This recipe I got from the "Hana Maui Recipes From Then to Now". I have not ever tried this one either.

Haupia #3

2 cups coconut milk
pinch of salt
4-5 tablespoons sugar
5 tablespoons sugar

Combine all ingredients in a cold sauce pan. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until thickened. Pour into pan; chill. Cut into squares.

Three ways to make coconut milk

#1-stove: Pour 2 cups boiling liquid (coconut milk, water, or milk) over 4 cups grated fresh coconut. Let stand 20 minutes. Strain through poi cloth or a double thickness of cheese cloth, pressing to remove liquid. If coconut milk is heated, bring just to scalding point, stirring constantly to avoid curdling. Yield: 2 cups. (8 cups coconut milk equals 4 coconuts.

#2-blender: Cut fresh coconut meat into 1/2 inch cubes. Add 3/4 cup hot liquid for each cup cubes, Blend on high speed 12 to 30 seconds. Let stand 20 minutes. Strain through double thickness of cheesecloth, squeezing out liquid. One coconut gives 1 1/2 to 2 cups

#3-packaged coconut: Combine 1 1/3 cup each packaged flaked coconut and cold milk. Refrigerate one hour. Blend 4 seconds in blender. Strain. Makes 1 cup.
These ways to make coconut milk I got from "Cooking on Maui with Bonnie"
