To Open Our Quick Crack Co

quick crack coconut
Find the equator (middle) of the coconut.
mallet coconut
Hold coconut with a towel to avoid any injury to the hand.

Using a heavy, cooking mallet, or the blunt side of a heavy knife’s blade, tap firmly along the equator.
tapping coconut
As you tap, rotate the coconut in the palm of your hand. Coconut will begin to crack.
opening coconut
Continue to tap and rotate until the coconut shell is cracked all around. Once fully cracked all around, separate the coconut shell in two. Carefully pry out the flesh with a dull knife, or continue tapping the shell until it further breaks apart freeing the flesh.
coconut baking sheet
To pry the flesh easier from the coconut’s shell, place the broken pieces on to a baking pan face down.
cutting out coconut from shell
Preheat oven to 350° and bake coconut pieces for 10 minutes. This helps loosen the flesh from the shell making it a little bit easier to pry it off. Allow coconut to cool down before handling.
