Coconut

How the hell do you open a coconut? I bought a peeled coconut today at an Asian market, thinking that it’d be easier to open as it didn’t have the skin. Lord, was I wrong. It was too hard to cut through (I don’t want to think about the damage I’ve done to my newish knives!). I ended up hitting it with a hammer, but could only make a smallish whole. Well, it was large enough to get my hand through it – and then I discovered that the sides were very soft! I guess it was a young coconut, but definitely they were not shredding material. I had nothing else, so I used them anyway. Let’s see how dinner (coconut pork) turns out.

  1. Hi Marga,
    Here’s a link to how one woman managed to hack her way through to the coconut milk and meat. Sounds delicious but looks like a lot of work!
