To open a coconut, you will need:
- A mature, brown coconut (found in most supermarket and health stores)
- Small jug
Take the coconut in your hand and begin to hit the hammer around the circumference of the coconut. Hit & turn, hit & turn.
Depending on the quality of your coconut, this could take a while!
The older they get, the tougher they get.
Hit & turn until the sound changes. As soon as this happens you know it will crack open. Get your jug ready. Let the coconut water run out.
Once drained, hit & turn until the coconut cracks. Prize open with your fingers. Ta-da!
