  • a question about how to use coconut oil

    so its solid, and say a recipe calls for 1/2 cup... do I heat it to melt it so that I can measure it...?.

    Just bought coconut flour and oil today so keen to try a few recipes and things.

    If the recipe calls for melted oil, then yes, melt the coconut oil. If it calls for, say, a stick of butter or Crisco, just use it from the solid form.

      If it's not hard as a rock, you can scoop/scrape it into the measuring cup with a spoon like you would with peanut butter.

      The melting point of coconut oil is 75-degrees, which means (at least in my house) that it can turn from solid to liquid during the day, and back to solid at night. Doesn't take much to melt it.

          LOL you probably won't have the same problem in summer in sunny NZ. I haven't made a recipe up with it, but it seems soft enough to spoon into a measuring object. Can you post some recipe's when you have had a go?
