How to Make Coconut Oil in Your Home


Hey guys in this video I’ll share how to make
your own coconut oil. With the numerous health benefits and uncountable
uses of coconut oil, you should be making yours at home. You will need just coconuts! I’ll be using 3 coconuts for this demonstration. Break the coconuts with a heavy blunt object. I love coconut juice so let’s take a commercial
break while I drink some! When done, pry out the coconut meat from the
coconut shell. Once the coconut is mature, the coconut meat
should come out of the shell easily. Rinse them very well. And cut into small pieces like this to help
your blender. Next, boil some water. Extracting coconut milk with moderately hot
water gives you more coconut oil than when you extract with warm or lukewarm
water. Don’t even think about using cool water for
the extraction. Then grind it in a blender till smooth. I diluted the hot water with cold water to
bring it to a comfortable temperature that I can safely touch with my bare hands as you will
see later. Pour in a sieve to separate the coconut milk
from the chaff. Then press with your hands to squeeze out
the last drop. I grind the chaff a second time to extract
more coconut milk. I’ll be using this sieve with a finer mesh
to sieve the coconut milk to remove the tiniest particles. When done, keep it in the fridge overnight. The next morning, you can see that the coconut
oil has separated from the water and caked beautifully like a frozen lake. Take the white part that’s the oil and place
in a clean dry pot. It is advisable to use original stainless
steel pots for this. Cover and start cooking on low to medium heat. Meanwhile what do I do with the coconut water? I pass it through a sieve. And pour whatever I catch in the sieve into
the pot because that’s coconut oil. You can use this water to boil plain white
rice, to prepare Jollof Coconut Rice and White Coconut
Rice. In fact, you can use it in any recipe that
calls for coconut milk because even though we have removed the coconut oil,
this water still has some coconut taste in it. Keep an eye on the pot and watch the coconut
oil go from this … To this … To this … I cooked it for a total of 1 hour 15 minutes
on low to medium heat to get here. If you notice some smoke while cooking it, you can reduce the heat to very low. Then set the pot aside so that the coconut
oil can cool down to a comfortable temperature. Sieve with a cheese cloth to remove the charred
bits. Due to the sediments at the bottom, I sieve
again with a paper towel. That’s it! Use coconut oil for cooking, for your hair
and body. Google for other uses of coconut oil. Bye, see you soon!
