My Take on Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil
I was making hamburgers yesterday and thought that I'd like to have some sauteed onions to put on them. Generally I use butter to saute my onions but I decided to try sauteing them in Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil instead. The coconut oil added a very nice flavor to the onions which is turn gave the burgers a nice new taste as well. I like that the coconut flavor was not overwhelming but that you could definitely taste the coconut flavor. Also, all I needed was just a spoonful of coconut oil added to the pan. I like that I can store this jar in my pantry even after it has been opened because there's no need to refrigerate. I'm very excited to add coconut oil to many more recipes as an added extra flavor.

  12. I have tried TT just yesterday!! I actually used it for a hair treatment,I put a little in my hair and covered my hair with a tight cap.I let it sit after massaging it in through my scalp and all through my hair.After about 15mins I washed it out,shampoo and conditioned my hair as usual.My hair is so soft and with dry scalp I can feel how it has moisturised it.Such a good relief.
    I do plan to cook with it soon!
