I just scoop some out w/ a spoon and put it into a measuring cup. I push down as far as it can go then use a butter knife and scrape the excess off.

When I was in highschool cooking class (many moons ago) they taught us to mesure butter by putting some water in a large measuring cup and adding butter until the water leavel had increased by the amount you want. So if you want 1/2 cup, start with 1 cup water and add until you have 1 1/2 cups. Then pour off the water of corse! Does that make sence? Anyway it should work for any solid fat.

I just put the jar of coconut oil in a bowl of hot tap water, then pour off what melts to measure. Or I'll scoop some into a small metal bowl and do the same.
