      Buy Organic Young Coconuts!! Never sprayed or treated. Forget about those pesticide ridden coconuts.

      Where?? I live in the Bay Area, in Berkeley, and I can’t find them anywhere. I would love to!

      I get them flown in from Thailand right to JFK here in Fresh Meadows NY (718)353-4807 on the west coast there should be more places to get them. I’ll try to find out for you

      you can also drink coconut water to stabilize your blood preassure, doesn’t matter if you have high or low preassure 😀

      Very good video! Also if you like to hues the husk for things that is a great way to seperate the husk from the coconut.

      Didi you know that Once exposed to air, coconut water rapidly loses most of its organoleptic and nutritional characteristics?

      Question: I got some young Thai coconuts last night and opened one of them and the water was clear but it had a sweet yet pungent taste to it. and the meat wasn’t white but more of a light grayish color. what exactly does a fresh young coconut look like

    • JackNeedles

      A fresh young coconut should have clear water and the meat should be white, but soft. The water and meat should taste a little sweet, not bitter or pungent.

      Thanks for posting this~ so helpful was able to perfectly open my first one! Delicious and healthy.

    • CocoJoesCoconuts

      The coconut you are using is a Thi Coconut not an Organic Whole Coconuts. Thi Coconuts are NOT good because of they way they are grown packaged and shipped. They are grown using chemicals and insectisides, and they are dipped in framaldihyde after being cut, then they are dipped in wax and then shipped to the US. These checmicals get into the coconuts making them lose all of their nutritional value. Use ORGANIC coconuts next time. Good video though. Watch my video on how to open a coconut.

      Great info, thanks! I had young coconuts every morning at Bonnaroo and it really helped me stay hydrated in the hot sun.

      hahaha that’s so awesome how you just cut all the meat at once, my jaw dropped because i find it so hard to do that.

    • saloneffects

      thank you, now I know the proper way to open it…so much easier than attacking it with a hammer and trying to drill into it

    • Leziii

      Thank you, I would’ve never opened this damn thing if not for this video 😛

      The inside of the coconut smells soooo amazing…

I was not able to clearly listen the plastic device name to remove the creame inside so if you can please post the name so i can google and get it. Thanks

    • ilovetosing4u2

      wow! it looks so easy. i should have checked you out before putting the hammer on the coconut for the first time. it was a disaster. i felt like tom hanks in castaway! thanks also for the bit of info on the coconuts.

      This is a good version of this dish. I am changing two things to this recipe. Drop the salt (soy sauce and salted black beans gives it enough saltiness), and add more chicken broth to 1/2 cup. I had black bean paste and it worked just fine in place of the salted black beans
