Coconut, like any other fruit, be sure to wash under running water.
Locate on one side of the coconut dark eyes – the weakest point. Carefully using a knife, make two holes and pour the juice into a container or drink it with a straw. Instead of a knife you can use a drill.
Take a large knife and the blunt side split coconut. Crack need pre-stressing place. This is best done at a distance of 1/3 cm from the location of the holes (near eyes), in this period the fetus has a lower density and easy to crack.
After the crack was formed, insert a knife and divide into two parts coconut. Then you can split into such pieces that you need. The pulp is usually rubbed on a grater and use in cooking. If the pulp is severely hard, the fruit was overripe.
