How to make Coconut Oil

1. Squeeze the milk out of grated coconut.

2. Set milk in the refrigirator to allow seperation of
water from the cream of the coconut milk

3. Take the separated cream of the coconut milk and boil it.
When the coconut milk bubbles up, then lower the heat.
Stir occasionally for residue not to stick to the bottom of
the pot.

4. When the coconut milk residue turns brown, the milk has
turned into oil.

5. Seperate the oil from the residue.
