    I see coconut water all over and that stuff is real expensive. I have never tried it. I know that coconut oil is good for almost everything. Maybe I will try the water. Is it a strong coconut taste. I am sure the stuff in the store is not like that which you got at the farmers market.

    Straight from the coconut, the water is very mild. The more mature the nut, the more taste you will find, in both the water and the flesh.

    What's the secret stoke for busting those nuts? I've tried and failed just often enough to keep me from trying again without knowing how it's done.

    I use a stainless steel drill bit with a cordless drill...a long straw completes the ensemble! ;)

    When it is green, I husk it down and gently cut the tip. It will pop like a soda bottle a little. Drink up then just cut it open.

    The mature nuts will give you a harder time and the outside is like armor. Husk it by jamming a "corner" of the husk and levering a piece off. All leverage and muscle with a mature nut. Once you husk it, you can use the husk for tinder and cordage, if you like.

    When you hold the husked nut, you will see a "face." Two eyes and a mouth. There is a line running the length of the nut between the eyes. If you whack it smartly on the line near the middle of the nut, it will split in two.

    But if you do that with a but full of water, you will likely lose at least some of the water. So I like to puncture the mouth and one or both eyes to break the vacuum in the nut. Then you can easily drink or pour. When you're done, then crack as described.

    Nut full of water. Not a but full or even a butt full. D@mn that autocorrect.

    True. But you'd have to have an awful lot and nothing else to mess yourself up.

    We had a couple more coconuts. Had to have the monkey hold them lower so it wouldn't look wrong. Was to focused on lower the nuts that I lopped off part of her head.

    Nut busting instructions for @ghrit.

    I poured the water out of the "mouth."

    Can you see the seam running between the "eyes?" I whack it on the seam near the middle of the nut to crack it open.

    The nuts were more mature so we got less, but sweeter, water.

    After almost 14 years in the beverage industry I can tell you...most coconut water you will find in the grocery store is far removed from the source. Lots of purification and added ingredients.
