    Gonna test some coconut oil for that asian taste

    I found this article on coconut oil
    http://www.nytimes.com/2011/03/02/di...pagewanted=all
    Øivind, for high-temp frying, use refined coconut oil rather than the virgin stuff. The virgin oil is good to use as a substitute for butter in baking. It also is great for popping corn.

    Thanks Rick.

    No virgins for me
    Virigins are mostly used on my cold dishes, like salads and stuff like that. My father brings me virgin from his house in Italy 6 times a year. Im stuck to use that, but its often a great virgin (olive).

    I would think that coconut oil would be very bad nutritionally. I use mostly olive oil, and if I need higher heat peanut. I also have a jar of bacon grease in the fridge that gets used on occasion!

    As the article referred to stated:

    “There are a lot of claims that coconut oil may have health benefits, but there is no concrete scientific data yet to support this,” said Dr. Daniel Hwang, a research molecular biologist specializing in lauric acid at the Western Human Nutrition Research Center at the University of California, Davis.

    * Sciabica olive oil for most stuff
    * Grapeseed when I need a high smoke point
    * d'artagnan duck fat when I want flavor
    * Clarified butter when I don't want smoke but butter flavor

    Coconut oil is about 85% saturated fat. Makes bacon fat look dietetic by comparison @ around 40%.

    Plus it tastes like coconut. My wife is crazy about coconut oil, including the health claims, but I just can't deal with making everything taste like coconuts.
