Re: What to do with a whole coconut?

Also, is there anything i can do with the coconut flesh other than eat it raw? Can it be added to cooking as part of a paleo meal?

...or should I just eat the thing and buy coconut milk to cook with?

Sorry if this all seems silly, just never bought or cooked with coconut before! (yes I have eaten it)

The water is good.

You can eat the fleshy white stuff.

Yes, you should get coconut oil as well.
