Ok friends I just learned this so I’m passing it on (very helpful information here.)
How to get the meat out of a coconut easily.
Take a screw driver and hammer and poke holes in the indentions on top and drain all the milk out of the coconut.
Then put the (whole) coconut on a baking pan place in the oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
Take out and cover with a dish towel and whack it with the hammer several times.
Then pry the coconut meat out with a butter knife.
The shells get hard and crumbly and comes off easily this way….It also does not cook the inside of the coconut.
I learned this the other day when I noticed a co-worker eating a large chunk of coconut and questioned her how she got it out in such large pieces.
(This is how)
