How does one open a coconut?
My question is to any one who knows how to open a coconut.
The unorthodox way my mom taught me was to just put the coconut on a strong bag and smash it against the concrete, hahaha.

Hey jeserem, though i have no personal experience with opening a coconut i found this article for you http://www.wikihow.com/Open-a-Coconut

The older type you see available in stores.
I am assuming you are referring to the older type with the white coconut meat inside. The ones in the store will already have the outer husk removed. The hard shell can be opened using the back of a heavy knife. Here they use a machete. They tap it, rotate it, tap it, rotate, tap until they have made a circle and it opens. They do this horizontally.
