Ronnie 2¢ from Atlantic Shores, United Kingdom

Thanks for the tip here. With this, you remind me that I often find coconuts washed up on my London shore of the Thames . . always puzzles me where they have come from !

25 Apr 2013 7:03am

@Ronnie 2¢: May be some stalls near Thames have coconuts and they find their way on to the shore!!!Or may be they swim across from Belgium:-)))

Not sure how you managed to remove the shell nicely.. cool shot

@Sarito: It just comes out neatly I have said here,deep freeze, thaw or half an hour , slide a knife( not sharp but butter knife) between the kernel and the shell, it will come out!!

Oiva from Turku, Finland

I will definitely purchase from a coconut and the taste of it, these photos make me curious as to what it tastes like a freshly opened coconut nut!:-))Haleja.

Beautiful day to you ,my friend!

@Oiva: You won't be disappointed, I'm sure:-). You can blend it and extract milk from this and add it to stew to enhance the flavour:-)

Funny, you posted that today - we were at our Vietnamese Store in the City and they have everything besides Vietn. goods - Indian, Chinese and in between. I was looking for the Banana leaves - no such luck but they had the Coconut kernels in the fridge and I was asking myself, how do they do that !!!Coincidence !Kind regards Monika
