Conquering the Coconut

This morning we opened a coconut for the very first time. What a challenge!

There are three holes(tender spots) on one end of every coconut and Google said to drive a nail in each hole and drain the liquid. It was wonderful. We strained it through a coffee filter to remove all the little hairy particles.

After the liquid is removed wrap coconut in a towel and whack with a hammer.

The kids each took turns until it opened up. I must say the inside is a gorgeous white that has remained completely protected and unblemished from the rest of the world. At last we tasted the meat...yum! All in all this was a fun little project for the kids to do together.
