    mindmaze, how do you take out all of the white 'filling' inside of the coco shell, when it's only 1/4 of the way open? doesn't look like your hand could fit in the opening to clean it out... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img]

    Be my guest and copy it... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/rolleyes.gif[/img]

    I can't possibly make it...puny lady, not much strength to chip and chop the coconut!

    It's commercially available for us here and I believe it to be a product of either Malaysia or Indonesia...the locals there are very good with such handicraft...and it's pretty cheap too...maybe USD$1? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Taking out the white stuff is the tricky part. I still haven't found an efficient way to do it. So far, the easiest method for taking out the white stuff is to let the coconuts out in the sun for a few days. This dries out the meat a little, and it sort of shrinks and separates from the wall, making it much easier to remove with a flat head screwdriver or knife or similar utensil. The problem comes when it rains and the coconuts fill up with water.... it really STINKS. :S
