I've now seen several recipes that I'd like to try that call for cream of coconut. I've scoured the stores within a 75 mile radius (yes, that is how far the nearest decent sized city is) and haven't been able to find it anywhere. Does anyone know of a good substitution or a way to make it at home? I was temped to mix coconut cream (from the top of a can of full fat coconut milk) with sweetened condensed milk but I'm not sure what the consistency or sweetness of cream of coconut is.
