It's been about 25 years since I've had fresh coconut (the only way I'll eat coconut, mind you). So, I thought I'd have some fun with my 4 year old and bought a one at the grocery store. It came with instructions on how to drain the milk and crack it open, but, it didn't really tell you what to do after that. So, here I stood with two halves of beautiful snowy white coconut. I managed to pry some out, but along with the white pulp came a layer of brown skin that seemed pretty well attached to the pulp. Am I supposed to eat this stuff? I carved away at the pulp with a knife and thought there's got to be a better way. What's the best way to get the coconut meat out of there?
