There’s been some discussion on the Mastery Nook about how to easily do in a young coconut so the water isn’t lost and neither are fingers. I have found the easiest way for me. If you have a meat cleaver lying around that you have no earthly use for, grab it and a hammer and follow the pictures below.
Be sure to buy your coconut either where there is enough turnover that you know they will be fresh or special order them. If I buy a case of nine coconut, I get a discount. Plus, by ordering, I know they haven’t been sitting in the cooler for weeks.
I hope this has been beneficial to everyone, especially Buttercup and Azee. You know who you are!
