I’ve opened my 3rd coconut and feel like it gets easier and easier each time. I haven’t tried opening a young Thai coconut… yet.
I have seen parts of a coconut look a bit… over ripe (mold looking) or discolored (yellow). I always cut out the over-ripe looking part. (That was my 2nd coconut) Some parts I see a pale yellow with a funny taste. (3rd coconut) Do I cut that portion out or throw it all away? I’m not really sure what to do in either case. The flavor is somewhat affected too. The coconut water on the 3rd coconut did not taste “right”? What does that mean… is the whole coconut bad? Or is that my “how to pick a coconut” skills need refining? Help! :o)
