It has been coconut harvest time at parent's place. The palms were full this year and the coconuts just keep coming!
The worst part is taking the husk off. It is the most labor intensive part. But, after the coconut itself finally comes out, it gets easier!
After we drilled 3 holes in the end to drain the water (and save it), simply tap around the middle or the equator of the coconut, and it will crack. Usually quite nicely. The white meat is then broken out of the shell, usually in chunks and pretty easily too, once you get the knack of it.
Good, sweet, homegrown coconut! Next, some fresh coconut candy.......
