Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil
Tropical Traditions, America's Favorite Source for Coconut Oil, provided me with a quart of their Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil. We have been using it for cooking everything: pop-corn, brownies, peach cobbler, apple crisp, oatmeal cake, and even grilled cheese sandwiches.
This version has a light coconut scent and taste; they also offer a version that is unscented. In chocolate recipes such as brownies, cookies, and cakes, it changes from plain chocolate to almost a candy bar flavor when I use this oil with the coconut flavor in place of butter.
