How to Open a Coconut!

How to Open a Coconut!

To open a coconut, you will need:

  • A mature, brown coconut (found in most supermarket and health stores)
  • Hammer
  • Small jug
  • Sieve

Take the coconut in your hand and begin to hit the hammer around the circumference of the coconut. Hit & turn, hit & turn.

Depending on the quality of your coconut, this could take a while!

The older they get, the tougher they get.

Hit & turn until the sound changes. As soon as this happens you know it will crack open. Get your jug ready. Let the coconut water run out.

Once drained, hit & turn until the coconut cracks. Prize open with your fingers. Ta-da!
