    I'm not a huge fan of it, but I like cooking fish with it. Wish I liked it better because it's good for you. Some people put it in there coffee and others cook everything with it, and some people just eat it right out of the jar.

    I eat it right out of the jar, LOL! Sometimes I just grab a spoon and eat some (when it's refrigerated - I don't like the feel when it's oily). I use it in a frying pan sometimes for meats (if I'm not using bacon fat). I've made fried eggs with it and it's good but for some reason, I don't care for scrambled cooked in it. And I have some in my tea right now

    ...ok just put it in the frig. Had it sitting out with my olive, sesame oil....I may brave it and dig in later. I will try anything twice. First times are always clumsy.

    I love fried eggs in it. They come out sooo fresh tasting. Somehow enhances the egg taste.

    I love using it to cook green beans and broccoli with garlic.
    The first coconut oil i tried was jungle products and I did not like eating it from the jar.
    I picked up a jar of Artisana coconut oil and a jar of coconut butter and it is really great to eat from the jar.

    I've been wondering about coconut oil myself lately because I've never tried it. I'd like to, but I'm not sure what to do with the stuff. I think I just need to get a jar and start experimenting! To those who are familiar with coconut oil, is there a significant difference in texture and/or flavor between different brands?

    Fair warning, it gets about as firm (and brittle) as a candle when refrigerated. You kinda have to shave it to get any (took me a month to break my kids of the habit of putting it in there when I first started using the stuff).

    My 2 favorite things to cook with coconut oil - any super-lean cut of beef (fillet mignon, for instance) that I'm planning to sear. And Mushrooms.

    Mushrooms seared in coconut oil are bloody awesome.

    Even awesomer draped over a coconut oil seared steak.

    Yum.
