How Usable is Coconut
A look at the health benefits of coconut oil, coconut milk, coconut water, coconut flour, plus
how to cook with coconut and work coconut into your diet.
Any kitchen in our little island sees the grating of a fresh coconut daily, because there is no Sri Lankan meal to be had without this luscious fruit.
The plucking of a coconut is not a simple skill. Selecting the perfect nut to be plucked at its most prime is an art. And this artisan will ensure that you get the best meat, water and oil from the perfectly matured nut.
The husks of a coconut can be crafted into a sturdy rope which is used for a multitude of purposes.
The plucked coconut must be husked. These husks are then used for a variety of purposes including nourishing and protecting the mother tree, and being the base for creative villagers to make works of art.
Weaving of Leaves
The leaves of the coconut palm are used as roof thatching, decoration for traditional ceremonies, and as storage materials. The art of weaving the leaves into durable products is yet another skill passed through generation.
Coconut Seller/ Transporter
The Ceylon coconut farmer is a hardworking and humble man, who transports the plucked coconuts with care. In the time before tractors, it was either by foot or with the hard working water buffalo to pulling his cart that these tasks were performed.
The traditional households use brooms, ekel brooms and Handicrafts made of coconut husks, twigs and leaves.
The traditional method of making oil from coconut meat was a hard and tedious process, but it was essential for anyone from this island.
