I received a free sample of Tropical Traditions Virgin Coconut Oil. They told me that I wasn't obligated to review it at all, let alone positively, but how could I not? This coconut oil is so far above any other oil that I have ever tried. Smooth, tasty, light....excellent to cook with and even consume plain. It is extremely soothing as a lotion on hands and face and has worked well on my sons eczema. I will not hesitate to purchase this product.
On a side note, we have been using Tropical Traditions expeller pressed coconut oil for quite a while. I love it, too! Several in my family don't care for a strong coconut flavor in foods, so expeller pressed is a great way to get CO into them without a fight. I highly recommend that you bookmark Tropical Traditions and check often. They have unbelievable offers (like Buy One Get One Free!!) and great weekly sales. They also have lots of other products from meats to books to body care. They also have a incredible recipe collection that I visit often. Go look!
I am a home cook that collects recipes from all over the Internet. Not all the canning recipes here are USDA approved. I assume you know the basics of canning safely. If you do not, please learn before attempting any canning recipes here or elsewhere. A good place to start is freshpreserving.com. Another excellent resource is Granny Miller. I do not write every single step of the canning process in every recipe. KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING. I live at 1-1000 ft elevation, so the recipes are written for that elevation. Adjust accordingly for your elevation.
