Coconut oil can be used very sparingly. Usually 1 tsp, or just about a pinch, is enough. Coconut oil begins to melt at about 28 °C and can be stored at room temperature. This gives coconut oil a spreadable, almost liquid consistency, making it extremely easy to portion out. When frying, organic coconut oil remains stable up to 200 °C. Avoid heating coconut oil above 200 °C, as this can have an adverse effect on the quality of the oil.
Unlike conventional oils, coconut oil gives dishes a somewhat exotic flavour. Coconut oil is not only for baking and frying,it can also be used to enhance fresh salads or as an alternative to butter and margarine on bread.
