Coconut Cream: Uses? Ideas?

I got lots of coconut cream when I made coconut milk recently. More cream than I wanted from making the milk. Any suggestions on how I can use it? Can coconut cream replace regular cream in some dishes? I was thinking of using it in a panna cotta recipe.

You can try whipping it. I don't know what the fat content would be in homemade coconut cream but I had to come up with a bunch of non-dairy (parve) desserts last year and I layered whopped coconut cream with chocolate mousse for one of them. It was much lighter than dairy whipped cream and the flavour what great combined with the chocolate.

A little googling led to this fascinating page. Quick summary: no good for ganache... use it in curries. Use the coconut milk for the ganache.http://cooking.stackexchange.com/questions/11793/could-coconut-cream-be-used-to-create-a-non-dairy-ganache-for-whipping

Yes, I'm thinking of it in desserts, in lieu of cream. Might work out well. Am definitely going to try making some "whopped" cream <LOL>
