Coconut 101 [Apr. 30th, 2009|09:44 am]

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)
