I'm just starting to use coconut oil in my cooking and the company Tropical Traditions sent me a jar of their certified organic Gold Label Standard Virgin Coconut Oil.
Tropical Traditions is a really cool company, I learned about their traditional methods of making coconut oil in the Philippines and their high standards for quality on their website: www.tropicaltraditions.com .
The owners of this company are passionate about their products. I love small companies like this because I truly believe that the products are better quality, as compared with many mass-produced food products.
That being said, it is time for the product review. Upon opening the jar of coconut oil, I was treated to a lovely aroma of coconuts. The scent was mild and not too sweet. I used the oil to prepare my Slow Cooker Chicken and Sweet Potato Stew . First, I sauteed the vegetables in the oil and then the chicken. The oil melted nicely and cooked the food without too much browning. I truly noticed the difference between other coconut oils when I ate the final dish. The coconut flavor was delicate and satisfying. On the whole, I highly recommend this product and encourage you to check out the company's website .
