How To Choose A Good Coconut

There’s nothing worse than going to all the work of opening a coconut, just to discover the meat is rancid. Here are a few tips to help you choose a good coconut at the supermarket.

  1. Look the coconut over carefully. Do not pick one that has any leakage out of the three black eyes at the top.
  2. Pick up the coconut with one hand. It should be fairly heavy for its size.
  3. Heft the coconut up and down with your hand to see if you can feel the liquid (the coconut juice or water) sloshing around.
  4. Compare coconuts for differences in weight and amount of liquid.
Oh, and by the way, here's a great tutorial on How To Open A Coconut, it has pictures and everything!
