Opening the coconut – a photo journey

July 7, 2010 § 1 Comment

When I decided that I would start drinking coconut water (the health benefits are amazing) I didn’t really give much thought to accessing the liquid. It was twenty minutes and a hammer later that I finally placed the straw in my lips!

    I’ll give you a tip for next time:

    – you have a decent enough knife for the job (a butchers knife is ideal) just shave the ‘skin’, for want of a better word, first

    – whack the knife on the exposed, hard shell with a controlled action (don’t take a full blooded swing oherwise it could end messily)

    – continue till you have a circular’ish lid you can rip off (generally around five or six cracks)
