    I fancy a coconut. They have them in the store nearby, but I don't know what to do with one :confused: How do I open it to drink the 'coconut milk' and to eat the inside of the coconut? :woo:

    Help :redface:

    My dad drills it wilth a hand-drill, pours the water inside out of the hole (you can drink this if you fancy) then hits it with a hard-edged hammer (not just a round one).

    just break it with a blunt edge, when you break ti the coconut water (no milk :p: ) will spill out, so make sure you do it over a bowl or something so you can catch it. the coconut water's very nice
    then use a knife to scrape out the inner white 'flesh' of the coconut.
    alternatively you can use your fingers to prise the flesh away from the shell, which is harder but will yield a greater amount of flesh as there is a border between it and the shell where the flesh can be 'peeled' away.

    enjoy

    I don't think I have a hand drill, though :confused:

    Will have to find a way, maybe I'll manage to cut through with one of my knives, lol :redface:

    a knife might be a bit hard... you could use a screwdriver?

    A knife?!? Be careful! You'll need to try pretty hard to get a knife through the shell, and if you slip you may cut your hand off. :rolleyes:

    get a gun and shoot a bullet through it (if you have one). then pour the milk out through the hole. then get a big mallet and try to break it open. or if you have a cricket bat, get one of your mates to bowl the coconut at you and you have to smash it with your cricket bat.

    My Dad used to drill a hole in it so we could drink the milk, then we'd throw it on the floor to crack the shell and eat the white bit. Haha the good old days of school fetes and coconut shies!

    Just use a sharp implement to go through the skin. Then pour out the water.
