Not a bad question at all. If you take a sharp object like an ice pick and stick it in and wiggle it around a little bit in several places, you will start to have pieces come off. For want of an ice pick, a fork or nail would probably do just fine. This particular tuocha seems rather lightly compressed and pretty dry (not very dense feeling). You might be able to just sort of apply pressure in opposite directions with your two hands moving gradually around the tuocha and loosening it with this pressure till you can pull chunks out.Ron Gilmour wrote:Ok, dumb beginner question: What exactly do I do with that big ol' tuocha in my "Year of Green" package? Take a hammer to it? Steam it to break it up?
