So do I just have a bad jar of coconut oil, or does it always have such a sharp kind of flavor? It's supposed to have a mild flavor.
a friend of mine made me a chocolate cake using coconut milk or oil or something and it just overpowered the rest of the flavors. now when she bakes for me I tell her not to use the coconut stuff if she can help it.
So, I don't have advice, but you're not alone!
What about trying these made with canola oil? I haven't tried them myself but I've heard that canola oil crusts do pretty well.

Oh, here is something from the Mercola site: http://www.mercola.com/2001/mar/24/coconut_oil.htm
I didn't read it all, but I did see that the article claims that coconut oil doesn't go rancid very easily, so I think this is just the normal flavor. The kind I bought is the expeller pressed food quality kind, not the cosmetic grade, just in case anyone was wondering. :LOL

What are you going to do with all your coconut oil? Maybe you could make hand lotion or lip balm with it.
