They’re quite a bit heavier than the canned stuff. But, with a machete, they can be opened just as fast.

Unfortunately I don’t own one. But that doesn’t deter an old Wyoming cowboy with a big kitchen knife.

A little hacking and the best coconut water is ready to drink.

But unlike the can, there’s still more goodness inside. Splitting open the green husk and nut reveals the jelly.

All that’s left is to scoop it out with a spoon.

And it seems there’s just never enough jelly coconut!
