Yes, it’s that time of year; coconuts are cheap and plentiful in our supermarkets. I was excited about this last year too, but it bears repeating given that in the intervening 12 months I have become an even bigger fan of the fuzzy ovals of goodness, adding it’s amazing oil to my Things I Love From Coconuts list, the contents of which are published below:
- Coconut oil
- Coconut milk
- Coconut water
- Coconut flesh
Last year I used a corkscrew, but my husband – perhaps over-egging the coconut – decided a drill was yer only man for the task. Or you could try a screwdriver but probably not if you have a decent sense of self preservation and place value on not stabbing yourself in the hand.
Drill through one of the dents (nope, still don’t know the proper word for those) and pour out the delicious coconut water through a sieve.
Here’s our pure coconut water – mean mammy would only hand over a small bit – and a few days of healthy snacking. All for a mere 69c.
