There are so many uses for coconut oil and I'm betting there are some that you wouldn't guess. I happened to get some tomatoes in my last Bountiful Basket and have been looking for a great way to use them. Tropical Traditions offers a 16 oz glass jar, 32 oz glass jar, 1 gallon pail and 5 gallon pail of their coconut oil.
After doing some searching on tropical Traditions 'How to Use Coconut Oil' page I found an amazing recipe for making your own ketchup..using coconut oil! I've also been experimenting a bit myself lately with using more coconut oil in cooking. Last night I cooked some chicken breasts in the coconut oil and seasoned with ginger. I made some egg noodles and creamy white alfredo sauce. Usually I like to mix my chicken in but decided to just slice it up and put on top of the noodles and sauce in case I didn't get the seasoning quite right. I was actually quite impressed though. There was a faint aroma of coconut and the hint of flavor compliments the white sauce and ginger amazingly.
I happened to also have some Brussels sprouts that needed to be cooked. I roasted them in basic seasonings (salt, pepper) and tossed them in the coconut oil before roasting. I remember as a kid not really liking Brussels sprouts but WOW were these delicious. =)
Some of the many ways I can implement coconut oil into my own home:
--Use for razor burn after shaving.
--Mix with sugar for a great body scrub.
--Use as a cloth diaper safe rash cream.
--Use a teaspoon and work through hair for a great conditioning.
--Use in cooking. Can substitute for butter as a solid or as various liquid oils.
--Use in making soap.
You can get your own virgin coconut oil, grassfed beef, or one of the other many amazing products the Tropical Traditions offers.
