They use a machete to cut the top of the coconut off. They do it with ease.
Now the guy in the picture above was using what looked like a meat cleaver. But the guy in the picture below is using a machete which is what my street vendor used.
The result is a hole in the top of the coconut from which to drink the cold coconut milk (actually it is more like coconut water). They put a straw in the hole and drink a flavorful drink of coconut water. No, that is not me in the picture below. It is just a picture that I got from the internet to illustrate how the coconut is served.
One day as I was driving down a city street inSo that was my adventure with coco frio and I am confident that with a little bit of sugar a coco frio will be really good.
I decided to try a
coco frio. I stopped at a street vendor
and got one. When I got back to the
office I told a supervisor who was from Miami about the coco frio. He asked me how I liked it. I told him that I didn't like the
taste. He smiled and asked me if the
vendor had put some sugar into the coconut to sweeten it. I told him "no" and he still smiled. Cuba
I am also confident that there will probably be some sugar in
creme pie. Sorry, no picture, it hasn't been made yet. Pictures to follow soon, hopefully. Lew
