    Red Palm Oil- Need a starter recipe

    I just bought some red palm oil. I have read that it has a very strong flavor, so I am wondering what would be a good recipe to try it with the first time. Should I go with a mild food, so I can experience the wonder that is red palm oil, or something more assertive, so I can slowly get used to it.

    Suggestions?

    Why not google West African recipes?
    Four years Primal with influences from Jaminet & Shanahan and a focus on being anti-inflammatory. Using Primal to treat CVD and prevent stents from blocking free of drugs.

    Eat creatures nose-to-tail (animal, fowl, fish, crustacea, molluscs), a large variety of vegetables (raw, cooked and fermented, including safe starches), dairy (cheese & yoghurt), occasional fruit, cocoa, turmeric & red wine

    I don't think it's all that bad/strong. It tastes sorta like spicy carrots (on its own) to me.
    I just add some to the top of my steak and let it melt. I don't even taste it.

    I do like that Congo Cookbook, thanks for posting that.

    I don't really care for the taste of red palm oil. Plus, isn't that the stuff that is causing all the loss of orangutan habitat leading to loss in numbers - or am I mixing that up with something else?
    Using low lectin/nightshade free primal to control autoimmune arthritis. (And lost 50 lbs along the way )

    Yes, you're completely wrong

    Orangutans are found in Indonesia on the islands of Sumatra and Borneo. The red palm oil in my locale is from Ghana. If there is an ethical problem for some simply source it from elsewhere.

    I researched the sustainability topic. Bottom line: It is a food source that CAN be sustainable. Buy a good West African oil from a reputable source. Otherwise, yes, some problems have occurred. But, considering that palm oil is apparently THE major oil source for the world, it's no wonder there might have been some habitat disruption. I imagine ANY food grown in huge quantity is in danger of upsetting the natural balance.
    I do think we can support the good companies though. I'm real happy with some West African RPO I got on Amazon
    Oh, but I agree with you, jammies- I don't much like the taste either. I'm posting on this page again, about how I cook with it under those circumstances
