Unsweetened coconut milk question

Marya | Nov 8, 2006 09:06 PM

I love cooking Thai, but I'm never able to find unsweetened coconut milk and just about every Thai recipe seems to call for it -- and they make sure to insist that I avoid a sweetened product. I've tried several Asian markets in my area, but the cans never indicate whether they're sweetened or unsweetened. Am I to assume that it's unsweetened even if it doesn't say that on the label? The obvious answer is to just buy a can and taste it, but to me, the cans always have a mild sweetness because such is the nature of the coconut. Your thoughts? Thanks.
