Comment from Elaina: "Hi everyone! I hope you enjoy this easy method! Listen I know young coconuts are controversial and that the ones from Thailand are dipped in formaldehyde. There are now a lot of Organic coconuts coming from Mexico so be sure to look for those. If they are cracked anywhere, throw them away. Pink and purple meat is bad! The water should be clear not murky. Okay? Okay!" Throw the entire outer part away once you have removed the water and meat. They do not compost well unless you put them through a wood chipper.
