roasted young coconuts

It’s been around forever, too bad it’s not so common in this part of the world. Roasted young coconuts, next level coconut water and if you get the chance, try it.

The green skins get cut off and they’re thrown in a fire, they come out looking like this.

Then the coconuts are put in a huge pot of simmering water over a hot fire for about 20-30 minutes. Once removed from the water the thick husks then get roughly chopped off, they get sanded smooth and now they’re ready to be sold at market.

Knife skills are important, crack ’em open

and get hydrated. Watching the process first hand, all the labor involved and they’re definitely worth every penny and then some, so tasty.
