To open a coconut in several ways. Some of them may seem heavier, others lighter, but their implementation will take more time or patience.
Coconut you can open this without making any effort. But this is only possible if you initially live in a tropical country or in your latitudes was hot Sunny weather. Just leave the nuts in the sun for several hours, causing its surface flecked with small cracks. You will only need to paste the crack in the knife and turn. If this action does not help, just lightly tap the shell with a hammer, the coconut will break into several pieces.
But good weather is not always the case. To replace the sun in this case will help ordinary oven. Place the nuts on a baking sheet, place it in a preheated 180°C oven and wait 5-7 minutes. Under high temperature the shell starts to crack. To finish it you will be able, as in the first case, with a knife or hammer.
If you want to get an even cut, the coconut can be cut using conventional hand saws with fine teeth. However, there is no need to make the cut exactly in the center. Much easier to do it at the top of the nut. Remember, from the fetus may leak fluid. If you wish to collect it, be extremely careful when opening the coconut.
Impatient can you advise a quick way to discovery the shell. Take a hammer and screwdriver. Inserting a screwdriver into each of the three dark dots at the base of the nut, drive it a few strokes until it breaks the shell and pulp of the pulp. Revealing 2 of the 3 holes and drain the coconut milk, punch a third hole, put a screwdriver in the side and continue to hit the shell small short strokes, moving over the imaginary line. Gradually along this line cracks, which will only insert the knife to open the nut shell.
