    Dibs, I store my coconut oil at room temp but I do melt it for the bread. 20 seconds in the microwave and it's liquid. Sweetie doesn't know I've switched from butter to coconut oil for his sandwich bread. I've been tweaking on an excellent white bread recipe to adapt it to wheat bread. The last couple of weeks he's been raving about how perfect the bread is coming out. The ONLY change has been to remove the butter and use the coconut oil. icon_wink.gif

    So glad I caught this topic before the month was over.
    There's been a lot of talk about coconut oil on Aussie cooking shows.
    Last week I nearly bought some at the farmer's market. Next week I will.
    Out of interest, what's the bulk price at Costco in the US?

    The jar I purchased at Costco was between $15 & $16 for 54 ounces. It is cold pressed, extra virgin, etc. The expiration date is in late 2014 so I am confident it will get used before it expires. I've been too busy to do much baking but I'm thinking it is going to make GREAT cookies!

    Ok, I finally opened my coconut oil jar. I used it half and half with ghee to make popcorn. I have one of these gizmos

    which I bought because microwave popcorn worries me, and I don't want to use my regular cooking pots for popcorn. It works a treat.

    Anyway, although the manufacturer tells you not to use butter, ghee or clarified butter work just great, as they can take the higher temps. The coconut oil gave it a bit of that movie theater flavor. We're munching on another batch this morning.

    I have been using coconut oil for about 3 years now. I even put a tsp in each dogs bowl twice a day. THEY have amazing coats! icon_lol.gif

    I use the neutral tasting one in place of all cooking oils (I still use olive oil as well as butter) and the Virgin scented one for baked goods and Asian dishes. I know you can add it to smoothies but I haven't done that as yet.

    Got cracked heels? This works
    Got dry, frizzy hair - works beautifully as a conditioner. I leave it on for 20 minutes and rinse it of with hot water. Great for rough knees and elbows too.

    It has a long shelf life. I keep it in the cupboard and I have never had it go rancid.

    I, too, am K9 owned, outnumbered by 3 of them. I recently upgraded their base diet and have been giving them fish oil caps since they came here (about 4 yrs ago).

    I record the Chew daily and Daphne Oz always cooks with coconut oil. I can't say that I've ever seen it in stores around here, but I've never really looked for it specifically. I've begun using olive oil more for cooking than I ever have because of health issues, and I like these rave reviews of coconut oil. It's going on the shopping list right now. My hair is frizzier than the law allows. icon_lol.gif

    It is wicked good for frizzy hair! Put it on your hair about 20 minutes before you shower and wash it out. No conditioner needed.
