    In order to save you a bit of money it might be better for you to buy coconut cream, I've started doing this as I have a lovely recipe which only uses half a tin of coconut milk and I kept chucking loads of it away as I wasn't using it. Coconut cream comes in a solid block and you only grate what you need from it, then you put it in the fridge and it keeps for ages. I've just had a look on the Sainsbo website and the prices are:

    1.59 for a 400ml tin of coconut milk
    0.71 for a 200g block of coconut cream

    You add 400mls of water to each 100gs of coconut cream, so out of a block you get 800mls of coconut milk which is the equivalent to 2 tins of coconut milk for 0.71! Or one tin for 0.35 (which is about a quarter of the price of a regular can)! And it keeps if you're not using all of it at once so doubly MSE!

    This was a tip recommended to me by an MSE user but I can't for the life of me remember who it was...

    When boiling your brussel sprouts, crumble a chicken stock cube in the water - they taste lovely

    I always used to boil or steam carrots, but a friend told me she roasted hers with the parsnips, tried it and they are lovely.Saves time and less washing up.
