Over the past few years I have read many things about using coconut oil but I was a little perplexed as to how I would incorporate it into my diet. One day I saw that Tropical Traditions was having a sale on their virgin coconut oil. I was intrigued by the vast array of recipes (and videos! http://www.youtube.com/user/TropicalTraditions) that I could access so I finally decided to take a chance and bought a couple of jars. Here are my confessions: A) Since I am a wimp when it comes to food "experimentation," B) I let those jars sit in my cupboard, unopened, for several months! (Hey, I'm being real here, folks!)
Every time I reached into that cupboard those two jars of coconut oil would beckon me to try it. A few weeks back I bought a packaged brownie mix and thought "I might as well use this as my test project!" Instead of using 1/3 cup of vegetable oil as called for in the recipe I substituted 5 Tbsp of coconut oil. Let me tell you that these were the most moist and delicious brownies I have ever made! It took my family about four days to finish the pan of brownies, and the last brownie was just as moist as the first one! I gained confidence after this first experiment, and have since used many different coconut oil recipes, to include salad dressings, smoothies, soups, and cookies. I will be trying out some entree recipes real soon. So, now I am an official virgin coconut oil convert! (I really am fascinated that there are hundreds of uses for coconut oil!
