I signed up for this once before and they never fulfilled my order, so buyer beware.

I got this a month ago for the same price it is now. I just haven't figured out what to use it in. I was going to make hash browns with it, then I read grapeseed oil has a significantly higher smoking point.

 

How do you cook with coconut oil?

SundayCrepes, I use coconut oil wherever I would use any oil.  When I sautee veggies, I do it in coconut oil rather than butter or olive oil.  It makes the BEST stovetop popcorn and cut up some potatoes (wedges, fries, whatever shape you desire), throw them in a covered bowl and add a couple T. of melted coconut oil and shake until all potato pieces are coated and bake at 450 until desired crispiness (super yummy).  I've found that it makes breaded foods much more golden and crisp than other oils (like making your own breaded fish or chicken nuggets).  If you make your own bread or granola or pizza crusts, use coconut oil instead of olive or veggie oils.  I usually get the refined coconut oil that is flavorless and odorless and I can use it in many more recipes.  I've heard of some replacing it in cookies and baked goods, but I haven't tried it that way yet.  I also love it instead of using lotion, I attribute it to helping with an eczema problem in both my DS and in me.

Thanks. Have you tried it with eggs? I'd be afraid the eggs would taste weird.

If we could have eggs in the house, I bet it would be good (the refined, tasteless, coconut oil).  DS has an anaphylactic allergy to them, so I haven't cooked an egg in 3 1/2 years!

I use it with eggs all the time. It doesn't change the flavor at all.

Does anyone use coconut oil for their pets? I just read an article that putting some in their food is very healthy for them but I don't know of anyone who actually does it. I use it for everything but never thought of adding it to dog food!

If anyone does, can you tell me what the benefits are....improvement you noticed, etc?

 

Thanks!

I love to bake with coconut oil...it makes things so creamy.  I do fry potatoes in it and popcorn is good.  I do not like to fry eggs in it bc I can taste it.  I am not a fan of the taste, so I have to be careful. 

I buy 5 gallons at a time from tropical traditions.  GOod price there too!
