While foraging today I discovered young coconuts at Pete's Fruitique in Bedford. I have read how beneficial young coconuts are for health so picked one up and after seeing a "how to eat a young coconut" video on You Tube I gave it a try.
Once drained you split the coconut and scoop out the tender meat. Unlike a mature coconut the meat is not firm and actually semi soft or gelatinous.
At $3:99 (cdn) per young coconut it is not cheap but in terms of health benefits and a possible effective sports drink it is well worth the cost for those long days on the bike or hard efforts in the goal.
