 A threesome enjoying the preparation of macapuno.  Note: Macapuno is high in oil, it may not be suitable as baby food. 

 Macapuno meat is soft, it can be grated or simply scooped out and ready to eat. It is best for halo-halo. Or cooked into bucayo or simply sweetened.   
 Break nut with bolo on the forehead (between the eyes) to get straight and clean halves

Closeup of the meat: the inner part is thick and viscous, while the outer is soft and tender.  There are macapuno nuts that are almost filled up with soft meat and less of the viscous liquid.
