  • Cheaper coconut oil?

    so I'll warm it and let you guys know how it goes. As for the taste I'll grab the 'virgin' CO for some taste. I bet it's great for cooking eggs in huh? OH WOW or simmering brussel sprouts in... yeah, can't wait now!


    THANKS!
    You'll probably be disappointed in using it as a salad dressing. Lukewarm (which it would need to be to be pourable) over salad doesn't seem very appealing.

      Or does it exist? I can't find any for less that $9.00. Is that normal? Coconut shrimp cooked in olive oil is good, but I'm sure they'd be better in coconut oil.


      Suggestions?

        I suggest a baggy sweatshirt to give you the five-finger discount...


        No, seriously though, you're not gonna find it for much cheaper than that. It's spendy stuff. O_o


        I know many people here like the Tropical Traditions brand, though I've never tried it myself. Not cheaper, but definitely quality stuff.

          If you have a Whole Paycheck near you their house brand (365) is $7. A couple bucks cheaper, anyway!

            It's so calorie/fat dense that it's totally worth it!


            I would personally buy different brands till you like one the best. The first one I tried was mucho expensivo and the taste sucked and made me want to gag, whereas the cheapo one I have now is great.

              I can get it at the Commissary for $5 a jar.

                Hi guys, I&#39;m new here. Soooooo, I have a couple questions about coconut oil...


                Is it good on salad? -and if so what mixes with it, like vinegar or what just salt and pepper? And what should it taste and feel like, ya know a good variety should be what- sweet, or tangy or thick and sticky or smooth.???.. I&#39;m getting some tonight when I go shopping, but I wanted some heads up on it if anyone can fill in some details.


                thanks!

                  Never tried it on salad as it&#39;s solid at room temp bit like butter - doesn&#39;t take much to melt...

                    CO is solid at room temp, so it&#39;s application as a salad oil is somewhat limited. It turns liquid at around 100F so you can warm is slightly and use in salad.


                    I got some cheap stuff at walmart $6 for a big jar, but it is the refined stuff so it is flavorless, which I find to be a real bummer. I love the flavor of the virgin stuff.

                    It's grandma, but you can call me sir.

                        I buy my virgin CO for about $11 a jar.. but it usually lasts me a month so that&#39;s a compromise I&#39;m willing to make for delicious coconutty oil..

                          Wait til it goes on sale at the cheap shop across town. I can get mine for as little as $5/jar. I buy about 10 jars that month and distrubute that around thei year.

                              What size jars are you guys talking about? Tropical Tradition jars are 16-oz, 32-oz, and 64-oz.
