    I was considering coconut oil till I researched it some in regard to my nut allergy. The jury seems to be out on that, though most people with allergic reactions to coconut were not allergic to other nuts. I am, to a scary degree, so not quite sure whether to take the chance or not. (Other sources said "don't do it," and anaphylactic shock isn't that much fun!) Butter, bacon grease (we get nitrite and nitrate-free bacon), or lard looks like it will work for us, for cooking.

    Still trying to get my brain around abandoning the CW lard concept!

      I love lard. I have some beef fat in the freezer I've been meaning to render so I can't weigh in on that yet. You can get lard hot as hell before it starts to smoke, is great for frying fish, chicken, whatever. I use bacon drippings pretty often as well. Sometimes butter, depending on what I'm cooking.

            Coconut's not a nut. There's no reason someone with a sensitivity to real nuts would have any problem with coconuts. That's like people thinking almond milk is a dairy product. Or how a giant gorilla can be called Donkey. If someone's allergic to both coconuts and tree nuts, well, that would suck.

            For the purposes of labeling, the FDA calls coconut a "tree nut"...but it absolutely is not one.
