Today I just thought I would show you all how to husk a coconut. Husking a coconut is relatively easy and there are various methods.
How To Husk a Coconut: Two Methods
There are two such methods of husking a coconut that I'm aware of that we use here in Trinidad and Tobago.
How to Husk a Coconut Using a Hoe
The first one I learnt, when I was young, was done using a hoe. It can be a bit cumbersome at first, but you will soon get it.
How to Husk a Coconut Using a Machete
The second method, and probably more risky, is done using a cutlass ( machete). Using the cutlass will require more skill, but the steps are similar. Be very careful, please. From the pictures you will see that all you have to do is to make segments into the husk then rip it apart.
Now on to the second method using the cutlass (machete)
Remember to twist the cutlass each time.
