Variety And The Spice Of Life…or Coconut, Is There Anything You Can’t Do?

June 11, 2013

Since figuring out all these allergies I’ve been doing a lot of experiments with different types of cooking oils. My love of flavor infused olive oils is well documented in this blog but lately I’ve been making my morning breakfasts with coconut oil and I have to say, I like it. Sometimes using the flavored olive oils (even if it is just a little bit) leaves the eggs tasting a little “greasy” which I don’t like. The coconut oil seems to not do that even though I use the same amount. The only thing I dislike about it so far is that it seems to smoke a lot more/quicker than the olive oils do. I could just be doing something wrong with it but I generally cook on a pretty low heat because I hate burnt food. Anyway the amount of products and foods I’ve had to use coconut with is just amazing. I really had no idea it could do so much…coconut sugar for my tea, coconut “milk” creamer for my tea, coconut flour for pancakes and coconut oil for general cooking and baking, I’m pretty sure there is nothing coconut can’t do. I’m waiting for “research” to show that it causes copious amounts of cancer when eaten in large supplies.
