When people walk into my kitchen, one of the first things they see is this:
Yep. I big jar of coconut oil. It is funny how many questions I will get about something I forget is not really “in the norm”. I use it everyday so I don’t think much about it. I forget that people still think that corn or soy oil is a healthy oil to use for cooking. ( Yep, vegetable oil is bad mmmkay. Go pour it down the drain. NOW. )
Besides coconut oil being a stable fat too cook with ( meaning it won’t give you cancer when you heat it up ) it tastes pretty darn amazing. One of the biggest questions I get is “does it make your food taste like coconut?” Well, no actually. I have found that it tastes like coconut straight out of the jar. ( Yes I admit I have taken a nibble of coconut oil straight out of the jar…) but when you cook it, the coconut flavor kind of cooks out. If you don’t do dairy, coconut oil is a good substitute for butter in both cooking and baking.
