Re: coconut oil
I bought some, and I actually think it tastes really good. You can use it in pie crusts instead of butter, and it makes them taste slightly like coconut! Yum! Coconut oil is supposed to be a really good saturated fat (it is saturated), macadamia nut oil is now all the rage for unsaturated fat, is supposed to be better than olive oil, but I haven't tried it.
Does anyone know how long it takes coconut oil to go bad? Since it's saturated, I guess it goes rancid? Will it be obvious to me when I smell it? This post just reminded me I have some in the pantry.
