    I cracked one tonight, and I like the taste. I dont see much in the way of people just cracking them and eating them though...

    they do it all the time in india, southeast asia, the caribbean, and other places where coconuts grow naturally...

    i looooooove raw coconut. on the occasions when my mother brings home a (brown/mature) coconut and cracks it, i am drawn to the fridge for more, and then some more, and then some more again....

    Does it need to be cool right away after opening? Yeah, the taste is enjoyable and I like the texture of the meat. Im thinking about making this a staple in my diet haha

    I buy one on occasion, crack it open , east some, store the rest in the fridge for later enjoyment.
    You'll never see the light if you're in someone else's shadow, or said another way, life is like a dog sled team, if you're not the lead dog, the scenery never changes

    I do. I drink lime and coconut water every morning. Its a good way to wake up the stomach and digestive system.

    I store young coconuts in the frig; and they are inexpensive at Indian/ethic markets from cultures that use them regularly. The price at the Indian market can range from .75c to $1.90; at health food stores, they generally start at $3.

    The meat is a great addition to any meal. I use mostly in smoothies, and making sherbet (ice cream without dairy).

    Okay, so how do you open one?

    Dremel? Anvil? Zamboni? Steam roller? Shrill voice of someone nagging?
