...gives me heartburn! i've tried eating it after meals (the first time i tried it -- i've only tried it once --), it was refrigerated and took kind of a long time to chip out as it was hardened ... i took about 1 tablespoon of it and didn't find it oogie, but not that delectable either ... how do i use it??
Jinglebits -Why are you refrigerating the coconut oil? Leave it in a cabinet and it should liquify (unless you keep your home really cool). No reason to refrigerate it; it won't go bad for years left out. If you can't handle it straight, use it to fry chicken or fish or even eggs. Put it baked goods; heard it makes cookies really yummy, but haven't tried that one yet. My dr told me her patients are putting it in smoothies and shakes.
I can't even look at the jar of coconut oil anymore! That one time I took it straight I though I'd hurl and felt sick the whole next day! :frown: I would like to try the popcorn cooked in it. Maybe I should start baking with it also, but still can't get past that gag reflex when I look at the jar.
thanks ... learned that you DON'T have to refrigerate it (dunno where i got the idea that one did), took a teaspoon of it today (yuck -- it's so TASTELESS), will try one tonite too, and will fry eggs in it ...
looking forward to my weight loss any time soon now ...
I just tried it on steamed rice, just a drizzle of it with some salt on basmati rice and it was rather yummy. If you can't handle the oil, then remember you can get a little of the medicinal properties of it by consuming coconut. You just have to eat a lot.
Not sure but my guess would be they have hydrogenated coconut oil and ALOT of sugar. But they sure are good!
Yep. I bet they are not good for you!!
I actually like cooking with the oil. I got Spectrum, all I could find in Reno. I cook eggs in it and if I fry anything like potatoes or veggies. I find it pretty good.
