God help me with this damn coconut!
 
I have been trying to open this freakin coconut for the last 25 minutes! WHAT am I doing wrong. It even says "easy crack coconut"
Also, the juice came out yellow?! I thought it was supposed to be white-ish?

You're using a hammer and screwdriver?

It's even easier if you stick the coconut in the oven for about ten minutes until it cracks.

The water should be clear. It can have a somewhat beige tinge, but it's clear.

A lot of coconuts sold in North America are rancid, though.

LOL. I haven't cracked a coconut since the early 80's but I love me some coconut. I think I used a hammer...I know, not helpful. I've never seen yellow coconut milk so good luck with that. :)

Now I'm craving coconut.

Narnia 11-13-2012 08:44 PM

I thought it should've been clear. It's definitely yellow.
Ugh, should I just throw out the whole thing?

Yellow coconut water/juice, not milk. Two different things.
I've never seen straight up yellow coconut water, though.

It looks like concentrated urine!

Yeah, I think that's a rancid coconut.

Narnia 11-13-2012 08:56 PM

Waaaahhh!
I'll toss the whole thing.

I meant to write water.

I was wondering what was wrong with it. Yea CC it smelt a bit off once I thought about it. I've never bought my own fresh coconut so I didn't have much to compare it to.
Where the heck can I get a good one!?

CurlyCanadian 11-13-2012 09:23 PM

I've never bought one, but this might help!

Choose a Coconut

What were you gonna do with it?

iroc 11-13-2012 09:28 PM

The title of this thread makes me laugh.

I love coconut!

If I opened a coconut all excited for it and it was bad I would be so upset.

I'm sorry for your loss.

I am sorry you went through the trouble only to have a rancid coconut, but I had to say... Your thread title cracked me. lol

Saria 11-13-2012 09:29 PM

Go somewhere where people who use a lot of coconuts shop. So, Asian or Caribbean markets.
I imagine good coconuts are even harder to come by in Canada, considering they're often rancid in the US.
I'd suggest looking for frozen coconut for what you need.

medussa 11-13-2012 09:30 PM

I'm craving coconut meat now. Dammit, I don't even have any Mounds or Almond Joy to satisfy the craving. I'm going to bed, where hopefully I won't dream of coconuts.

Thanks a lot, Narnia! :pain10:

Y'all I know! Imagine how I feel breaking a sweat dreaming of my coconut smoothie!

I started a 21 day challenge for primal eating/lifestyle. Coconut is highly praised in this way of eating and I was PUMPED about it

Ooohhh, Almond Joy.
