Description:

Groovy coconutsTM
have a groove around their circumference that makes it easy to open when hit with a sharp object. Drill a hole or hammer a nail (then pull it out) in each of the 2-3 dark indentations on one end. Drain the coconut's juice. If no juice comes out, drill a hole in the other side to allow air to enter.
For smaller pieces, securely wrap a towel around the drained coconut and hit a few more times. Smaller pieces make separating the meat from the shell easier.
Once it's cracked open, securely wrap a towel around the drained coconut so when it breaks no pieces will go flying. Hit it a few more times to break up the larger pieces. This makes separating the the meat from the shell easier.
Using a knife, pry the meat away from the shell, being careful not to cut yourself. The thin layer of shell that sill clings to most of the coconut meat shards can be scraped away with a vegetable peeler. Rinse off your pure-white coconut meat and enjoy.
