Yaya has been curious about coconuts, so we bought one at the store and opened it.

Now I have an open coconut.

Any ideas?




(Unfortunately it did not split evenly, so I cannot make the sound of horses galloping....)

as kids we just loved fresh coconuts .
first , we'd drill two holes into it to pour out the juice , then came the fun of hitting it with a hammer - ouch , i missed ! - and splitting it .
my brother and i were usually able to finish up a juicy coconut in one sitting - and i would sometimes accuse him of taking the bigger piece - which he actually did not take - but i was the younger one , entitled to complaints Laughing

Harry Belafonte, Coconut Woman


Coconut woman is calling out
And everyday you can hear her shout
Coconut woman is calling out
And everyday you can hear her shout
Get your coconut water, four for five
Man it's good for your daughter, four for five
Coco got a lotta iron, four for five
Make you strong like a lion, four for five

A lady tell me the other day
No one can take her sweet man away
I ask her what was the mystery
She say coconut water and rice curry
You can cook it in a pot, four for five
You can serve it very hot, four for five
Coco got a lotta iron, four for five
Make you strong like a lion, four for five

Coconut woman says you'll agree
coconut make very nice candy
The thing that's best if you're feelin' glum
Is coconut water with a little rum
It could make you very tipsy, four for five
Make you feel like a gypsy, four for five
Coco got a lotta iron, four for five
Make you strong like a lion, four for five

Didja get the coconut water out first? mmmm

Have you chipped out chunks to eat? shred some to put on a fresh fruit salad - that's an easy way to enjoy some of the coconut

Make a green Thai curry. Yum.

They way I opened it (whacking the seam with the handle of a knife) the water got all dirty. I may try another way if it seems worth it.

I forgot about the lime in the coconut, although I did make a joke to T about it while we were at the store. I got this reaction: Rolling Eyes .

In the chinese and vietnamese street markets here, they have fellas that cut the top of the coconut into fancy shapes, then poke a hole in one of the eyes, stick a straw in and give you your coconut to drink out of - before you take the coconut home to cook with.

@DrewDad,
If you have any leftover coconut? Make Almond Joys.

@DrewDad,
Crush this coconut and make a white sauce. Add milk for better consistency and also add some spices for a taste like cinnamon, black pepper powder, and pink salt.
