50 People Try to Crack Open a Coconut | Epicurious

One day, you will be in a market, and you will pass the coconuts. They will grab your attention. You'll say to yourself, "I'm going to buy this coconut." You settle at the register, and bring your groceries home. You put most of them away. As you hold up that last item, you will ask yourself:

"Why did I buy this coconut?"

At least we can help answer how to open it!

    The chef say don't want to lose the coconut water, but it is an old coconut. Usually for making coconut milk by taking the flesh, grate it, and squeeze. The water did not have any yummy taste, unless you want to make nata de coco
