Cracking and removing the flesh of a hard, brown coconut can be tough. I know I've broken the tips off many a kitchen knife trying to scoop the flesh out! Not to mention nearly cracking my kitchen counter trying to get the coconut shell open!
Here's how you can simplify your life...
Simply refrigerate the coconut for 1 hour before cracking open!
The shell will break easily and the flesh will separate from the shell without you having to wrestle with it!
