I use it to cook just about everything sometimes. (sometimes I use other fats). sauted onions for curries, stir fries, whatever. It's also really yummy and tastes like dessert if you mix it with natural pb and raisins.
Everyone loves it when I cook omelets in CO and salmon patties. MMMmmmm....
I purchased Nature's Way Efagold VCO the first time and it was good. I put some in a jar for beauty products and left the rest in the original container for cooking purposes.
Just as I was running out of the cooking portion, someone in the frugality & finances forum posted a sale on amazon for Nutiva VCO. It was two containers for less than one at our local hfs and free shipping. People say Nutiva is the best. We didn't notice a difference and I also asked some neighbors to try both for a test of sorts. (They were curious already.) No difference; both were great.
Anyway, CO melts at certain temperatures (70-something degrees farenheit) and is solid at cooler temps. We have more than half the year where the CO is liquid naturally.

My DP uses coconut oil in smoothies-- he says to be sure to drizzle it in after you get the smoothie mixed up and the blender is running, otherwise it will clump up at the bottom of the blender when it comes in contact with frozen fruit or ice.
