How to Crack Open a Coconut

How to Crack Open a Coconut. Release this tropical treat from its hard-as-a-rock
shell without needing a machete. You will need An ice pick or clean nail A
large bowl A hammer or a large butcher knife A cookie sheet and a spoon. Step 1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Step 2. Pierce the three indentations on the top of
the coconut using either an ice pick or a long, clean nail. Do this over a bowl in the sink so you can
catch the coconut water. Drink the coconut water or save it and use
it for cooking. Step 3. Hit the middle of the coconut with a hammer
or with the blunt side of the knife blade. Hit it firmly, but don’t whack it. Rotate the coconut, continuing to hit it at
the equator with the hammer or the knife. Eventually, it’ll split in two at the center. Step 4. Put the two halves on a cookie sheet in the
oven for about 10 minutes. This will help the meat separate more easily
from the shell. Use a spoon to scoop out the meat. Step 5. Shred it, grate it, or just pop it in your
mouth and enjoy! Did you know Coconut water was used as a substitute
for saline drip on injured soldiers in World War II.
