I have been hearing a lot about coconut oil and how great it is recently, but I was skeptical. I am not a fan of the taste of coconut, but I was given the opportunity to try it out from Tropical Traditions and I said why not. I definitely try out a lot of things now that I would not have normally.
Coconut oil is a liquid at 76 degrees Farenheit, and below that it will be a solid. It can easily be stored in either form and then liquified with a low level heat. It will most likely be in liquid form when you receive it because of the heat from being shipped, but they did a great job with packaging so there was no leakage or breakage.
So what did I do with it? Well I used it as a facial and lip moisturizer to start and loved it. Then I of course had to try it in some cooking and baking. I used it to saute some chicken and the results were amazing! While I am not a fan of the taste of coconut, I do like the smell of it. When I heated the oil, it gave the whole house a nice smell of fresh coconut. It left the chicken perfectly moist inside with a slightly crunchy outside. There was no coconut taste to it, which I loved also, but the flavor was so clean tasting. I then made some beef stir fry with it and had the same great moist results with the beef. Next I had to do a little baking. I litterally made a quick batch of brownies from scratch 45 minutes before leaving to visit with some family. When I told my husband I was going to make them, he thought I was crazy and it would take to long. So the tasting results from the family were great. It did leave a slight coconut taste to the brownies, but I thought they were still a tasty little something. Everybody else absolutely loved the brownies with the slight coconut taste. Most of them actually had 2 if that tells you something.
