For a video on how to open a young coconut, visit Matthew Kenney's site at and click on 'event calendar'. At the top of the calendar is a link that says 'live from the plant'. Click on that and it will open a movie showing you how!


Do you think you could have a description on how to cut a thai coconut?! They are soft and extremely difficult to open. I had to throw away a gorgeous one because I could not get it open!


I have just bought two lovely young coconuts from my local international food store 'Mattas' in Liverpool. If you go into your local Asian food market you'll find them there. Just about every big town I've been in in the UK has at least Indian or Middle Eastern food shop, and if they don't stock young coconut, they'll probably be able to get it in for you if you ask.
