    Those coconuts are hard to open!


    I remember buying one then breaking everything in my house before actually opening it. And both the water and the meat were gross

    Seems I've read somewhere that coconut water (straight from the coconut) can be used in place of blood plasma to keep a person alive when a real human blood transfusion is not available.

    @NSWM tell me about it! I broke some utensils before I discovered that there should be holes near the top and you just use a knife or nail&hammer on each one until you find the one that has the thinnest layer of meat. After pouring out the water, you can go at it sledgehammer style on the floor =)

    Yeah, I did the nail and hammer thing (eventually). You also should wrap it in a towel or your house-mates will be covered in coconut.

    FWIW, I used a Philips head screwdriver and hammer to pop the three holes... If I wanted the "meat" too, I'd use an old cleaver (don't use one you care about!) and hammer to split it after the water was out.

    I was reading eonline (effective procrastination tool at work) and today therewas an article about celebs truning to coconut water. I pressed the "read more" hoping it would be a link about celwbs adopting prinal-type lifestyles, but alas, what caught my eye is that the drink is FAT FREE. That can't be from a coconut then, right? Isnt that the point?

    I think you're thinking of coconut milk, which has all the fat in it because it's made from the flesh of the coconut. The coconut water, OTOH, is simply the water stored inside the coconut =)

    Lillian. You are right. Thanks for clearing that up.
