- Pacific Islanders consider coconut oil to be the cure for all illness
Coconut oil is very heat-stable, which makes it suited to methods of cooking at high temperatures like deep and pan frying. Use it to brown onions & garlic for casseroles and stews, brush the liquid oil on vegetables before BBQ-ing or brush potatoes and pumpkin for oven roasting. (As coconut oil is solid at room temperature simply melt the required oil quantity in a bowl sitting in hot tap water for a few minutes.)
You can also use coconut oil in pretty much any recipe that includes a fat. With its slightly nutty and sweet flavour it is delicious when used in baking such as muffins, pancakes and scones. Why not try using coconut oil when making good old fashioned popcorn or classic Asian dishes such as curries and thai soups.
