Our RAW Nuts Young Coconuts are actually quite easy to open with a large kitchen knife.

You do not need to buy any special tools to open our Young Coconuts, just use a sturdy knife, but please watch your fingers!

You might find this challenging to start with, but after you have done it once or twice, you will find it easy!

Our coconuts are completely full to the brim with water, so please keep them upright when opening.

1) Take a large, sturdy kitchen knife

Love this stuff, used it for years when my local Chinese ingredient shop said it's discontinued 😳 thankfully came across Essence if Thailand who still sell it & hopefully won't discontinue it? Very happy with their service and speed 😁👍

Original Chinese curry.
Tuesday, 22 October 2019  |  Charles

This sauce is very much like the Chinese take away. The best thing about it is you can thicken it up by adding table spoons, and also do slow cooking with it. Lasts well and worth the price. Delivery was excellent. No problems.
