Coconut oil is my favorite oil not only to cook with, but to use on my body as well. Spill a bit on the counter? Rub it on your elbow and feel fantastic. What other product is like that AND smells amazing? Speaking of that, do you know how to tell which coconut oil is the best to use in your cooking?
A friend of mine said that her coconut oil had no scent or flavor at all, and when she melted it, it turned a little yellow. Ick! Coconut oil needs to have a light scent and taste from its source: coconuts! It also should be white when solid and clear when melted to be of good quality.
