Master Shoestring won 3 coconuts last Saturday. Last year when his accurate throwing also won him a prize we put them out for the birds but this year we thought that we might have a go and keeping them for ourselves.
First thing Mister Shoestring bored a couple of holes in the top of each one and we drained off the water to drink. Next he tried hitting them with a hammer to try and break them open but without success. So then he put them in his woodworking vice and turned until they cracked. After that we dug out the coconut meat and grated it to put in the freezer.
Shredded or cubed coconut will keep for up to 8 months in the freezer so we are looking forward to a few coconut treats in the future. Well done Master Shoestring !
