Anyone cooking with coconut oil? Need advice.
I've been reading up on the many salutary benefits of cooking with coconut oil. Supposedly, it's a very healthy alternative to butter and other oils.
Does anyone here have real-world experience in cooking with this stuff?
I just bought a small tub of it, and it's liquid. I'd read that it's supposed to be a solid down to 76 degrees, but mine is pure clear liquid. I'm wondering if it has gone bad? (My kitchen is 74 degrees.)
And if you're going to use it as an alternative to butter, how much do you use?
I'd be grateful for any and all advice from experienced cooks.
