Concentrated coconut milk
I learned this trick from my cousin when I visited his resort and restaurants in Jamaica.
I've learned Jamaican cooking from my parents who use coconut milk in various recipes. they made their coconut milk from scratch.
When I went to visit the kitchen at my cousins restaurant, I found the cooks used - POWDERED COCONUT MILK!!!
Previous to that I did not know such a thing existed. I have since found it at asian groceries where it comes in cocoa-sized packets that sell for about 75 cents.
I find this helps in creating flavorful beans and rice, or curries without overdoing the liquid and making everything mushy.
