Coconut Oil Information

I don't know what the weather has been like near you but it has been blistering hot here.  As a result, I did not make two of my recipes for you using coconut oil Monday or Tuesday.  It was just way too hot to heat up the kitchen!  So, instead I have compiled some links to interesting facts, uses, and recipes for coconut oil.  (Also, don't forget to enter for a chance to win a quart of Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut oil.  You can do so here before midnight Friday, June 1, 2012).

Here is a recipe for Homemade Toothpaste

Crunchy Betty has a ton of uses for coconut oil

How about making some pie crust using coconut oil

Here is a link for 160 uses for coconut oil and from the same blog a link on cooking with coconut oil

If you haven't tried virgin coconut oil, you really should.  I find it has a high smoke point so it is great for sauteing.  It also brings a natural sweetness which actually acts as a flavor enhancer in savory dishes and allows you to cut down on the amount of sugar needed in sweet items.

Go coconuts!
