CFDubbs Posted August 14, 2013 Share Posted August 14, 2013 Hello all, I think I need a primer on coconut, people. I am confused as to what type of coconut oil I'm meant to cook with. Right now I have a jar of organic virgin coconut oil (from Spectrum, I think), which is solid at room temp and smells/tastes strongly of coconut. The jar says it's only meant for medium heat, but the paleo recipes I've looked at seem to suggest that coconut oil can be used at high heat. Did I buy the wrong kind? Does it all taste like coconut? It's not unpleasant, but I don't really want tropical notes in my omelet. Also, what the heck is coconut butter, and is it different from what I have? I apologize if these questions are completely idiotic--I thought I knew about natural foods but clearly I'm out of my element! Help! Day 3 of Whole30. Woot.
