Friday Foto: Coconut Plantation


Koh Samui, Thailand


While we were in Koh Samui, we were lucky enough to visit a coconut plantation.  Watching these women husk, crack, and remove the apple and meat gave me a new appreciation for every food I eat with coconut as well as every product I use with it.  It actually wasn't until our visit to Koh Samui that I fell in love with coconut juice.  When I was younger, my mom used to give me canned coconut juice, and after one sip, I would give it back to her.  While we were at a restaurant, I saw another diner sipping a drink from a coconut, so I figured I would order the same thing.  I expected a shake, so I was surprised to find out that it was just coconut juice—it was so good and definitely did not taste like what my mother gave me when I was younger.  It was pretty much my drink of the trip!  (By the way, the coconut juice is better in Koh Samui.  I ordered it in Phuket, Krabi, and Bangkok, but, hands down, Koh Samui had the best ones!  Their coconut oils and butter looked better, too.  I now wish that I stocked up while we there.)
