For years I have walked through the produce center and walked right by the coconuts.  I have always wanted to buy a coconut, but I had no idea how to open them or what to do with it once I got it open!  So awhile back, I set out to conquer  my fear of a coconut :)  To my surprise, it wasn’t that bad after all and was actually quite easy.  Yes it will take about 5 minutes to open and get the meat out, but it is well worth the effort!

Did you know that you can get all this from 1 coconut?  Coconut water, coconut milk, dehydrated coconut flakes or fresh coconut flakes, coconut flour, coconut butter/cream?  All these products for about $1.99 and a little work!

This week I am posting a 4 video series about coconuts.  You will learn the following:

    I recently purchased two whole coconuts.  The first one I opened was horribly moldy inside and had a very bad smell.   It was heavy and full of stinky coconut water.   The second one I opened looked good, the water tasted good but the coconut meat had a strange taste.  I inspected them well before buying and still got bad ones.  Is there something more I need to know about how to pick good coconuts?

    I thought that would be harder to do.  I must try this.
