Homemade Coconut Oil

It easy as 1,2,3 ... just take a little time
 
Ingredients:
dry coconuts (1 dry coconut will give you about 1/4 cup pure homemade coconut oil)
water
 
Here are the Steps:
Cracked coconut and removed the coconut meat then cut into pieces
 

 
Process in a food processer or you can manually minced it by hand using a hand grater, however, by using a food processor saved a lot of time. After a few minutes your coconut will look like this
 

 
Now a used a blender add the minced coconut and water to make it like a smoothie (in this case you can use any amount of water because we want to extract all the milk from the coconut meal) then strained it to separated the coconut milk from the coconut meal
 
 
We are really interested in the coconut milk. Place the coconut milk into a container, cover, and leave over night. Do not disturb it. As you can see the coconut fat is starting to separated from the water by settling on the top
 

 
On the next day skimmed of the coconut fat and place it into a pan or pot and put  it over medium heat. Keep cooking until you will see the coconut fat turns into pure home made coconut oil
 
 
Strained and cool before storing. Personally I keep my coconut oil in my refrigerator but it can stay in your pantry like regular oil.
