What is the best and easiest way to open a whole fresh coconut? I want to make ribbon rice tomorrow which calls for fresh coconut.
Are you channeling your best self with this comment? (If you're not sure, check out our Code of Conduct.)

For opening a coconut, this is the method I usually use: http://www.howtoopenacoconut.com/ If, after opening the coconut, you still have trouble releasing the meat from the shell, you can place the pieces of coconut on a baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 10 to 15 minutes.
Thanks! Great help.
EASIEST WAY TO OPEN A COCONUT
we always open the coconut like this and we participated a video show at CIA NAPA long back with the food writer Janet Fletcher
Power drill and a kitchen towel.
PaulJoseph's method is the only way. Chef's knife is one of the greatest investments ever.
