No. After you crack it the flesh still has a layer of "rind" that is tough to remove. Takes forever and I'm fairly sure I'm going to lose a finger soon.

Oh. Maybe you could give your pet monkey a crack at it.

Or try this:How to open a coconut, learn how to open coconuts

That's how I'm doing it and it takes forever!! My monkey has delicate hands for threading bolts. I wouldn't want to damage him.

When I lived in the Keys I had a big spoon that was sharpened on one of the edges and that's what I used to get the flesh out of them. It worked like a charm. Fresh coconut for real pina coladas while laying in the hammock overlooking BlackWater Sound in Key Largo. Good times.

Ok, here's what you do. Drill 2 holes in the coconut to drain the milk (one to let the liquid out, the other to let air in). Then bake the whole coconut for 15 minutes at 350°. Let it cool own a bit and then crack the shell and it will come right off. To remove the thin brown husk that is still on the meat, use a potato peeler.

Gonna try out for "Survivor"? Mmmm - rice and coconut!

And I'm not implying that you need to lose weight. My bruises are finally going away and I'm not going that route again!

True, Today I almost ripped my nose off with my thumb when the tire iron I was using slipped off the lug nut.

I was putting some torque on it.

i saw some coconuts in the grocery store about 2 weeks ago. i couldn't bring myself to pay $3.00 for one so i didn't get it. then i read this thread yesterday and got the urge for fresh coconut. today i went shopping and the coconuts were calling my name again. so, i pick up 2 of them ( 2 for $4, yay) and i am in the process of opening them. i have decided to try it chezuki's way. i drilled a few holes and i am warming the oven. mmmm, i can taste the coconut now.

Go with the grain and use the sharp end towards the coconut.
