Hiya I have a coconut here and was just wondering how I can get inside it and get the juice out too?

starlover Tue 28-Jun-05 20:15:47

drill a hole in it. with a clean drillbit

I'm sure Lakeland must do a wonderful coconut opener !!

or use a corkscrew?

lou33 Tue 28-Jun-05 20:17:02

kncok a hole through using a screwdriver and a hammer, or drop it onto some concrete. Both work

Oh please do be careful (I sound like my mother)! I'd be tempted to use a chisel technique myself ensuring that all parts of my anatomy are out of the way !

make a small hole in it with a screw driver or a electric drill then drain the milk out then smash the rest with a hammer!

LancashireLass Tue 28-Jun-05 20:17:51

Lo, are you serious with the screwdrivers or just having me on?

lou33 Tue 28-Jun-05 20:18:56

dunno about the others but thats how i do it

We use hammer & large nail - 2 holes req'd to let air out. Then smash it with a hammer to eat!

LancashireLass Tue 28-Jun-05 20:23:51

Lol, and can the holes be hammered anywhere or does the coconut have particular softspots like a babies head?

LancashireLass Tue 28-Jun-05 20:24:16

LancashireLass Tue 28-Jun-05 20:30:44

unless of course you have a big green fresh one, in which case chop the top off, bung a straw in and drink the milk
