Coconut oil

This container of coconut oil is just plastic, but you can also find coconut oil in glass jars (usually organic). Coconut oil has the same consistency as shortening. It doesn’t have much of a smell, but when used in recipes such as cookies or biscuits, it gives a slight coconut-y taste. Coconut oil is stored at room temperature, and is also a solid at room temp. Depending on your local climate, coconut oil may melt some in the jar during summer months. You can also melt coconut oil in the microwave, for example, if using as a substitute for butter or grapeseed oil in recipes.
