How To Open A Coconut Without Making A Mess In The Kitchen
For this kitchen hack, you'll need some tools like the hammer and screwdriver. Using the tools, poke holes in the eyes of the coconut. Through the hole, empty the coconut water from the coconut in a container. Now, using the hammer, gently tap around the coconut. A crack shall start forming around the coconut. Once the crack is complete, the coconut shall pop open.
Time for de-shelling, stick a knife in between the coconut shell and coconut meat and slid it around the circumference. Stick a spoon in between and pull the coconut meat away from the coconut shell. The coconut meat is out and ready to use.
This way, neither shall you waste coconut meat or coconut water. Easy-peasy, right?!
