Coconut oil has been in the spotlight lately as a fabulous cooking ingredient because of its many health benefits and added flavor. This particular oil is a solid (like shortening) at room temperature but quickly melts when you cook with it and can be used for baking, sauteing, etc. It contains lauric acid which has been shown to be anti-fungal, anti-viral, and anti-bacterial (all good things).
All of that being said, I have never cooked with coconut oil but one of my favorite blogs (Pure Mod Life), highly recommends it so I jumped on this deal when I found it.
Amazon currently has 2 15 oz tubs of Nutiva Organic Extra-Virgin Coconut Oil for only $11.15 shipped!
It’s like Buy 1, Get 1 Free if you were to go to the Nutiva website where each tub would be $11.15! You do have to sign up for Amazon’s Subscribe and Save option to save an additional 15% to get this low price but you can easily cancel after you receive your first shipment.
I can’t wait to cook up some shrimp, saute some veggies, maybe even bake with this oil! Review to follow…
