Eco Coconut Oil

Chop away the shell of a coconut with a machete:

Pull the strands from the inner husk:

Give a few good wacks with the back of a machete around the middle of the nut, so it will crack open.
Drink the water.
Scrape the white coconut fruit out of the shell:

Mix the yield of 30 coconuts with 5 liters of water:

Squeeze out the milk and strain.
Cover the container with cocnut milk with a white cloth and leave in the sun for 2 days.
Strain the oil that has come to the top:

Pour the oil into bottles:

Feed the residue to the pigs. Or better still: sell as animal fodder.
The oil can be used as vegetable oil for frying, or to soften your skin.
