My thoughts:  I have previously used a "virgin coconut oil" and liked using it. However, the brand I used had a distinct coconut fragrance and taste.  I really didn't care for that, but accepted it as just the way coconut oil was.

Now that I have tried the Paradise 100% Natural Coconut Oil I see that you can have the benefits of coconut oil without the fragrance and taste - which I didn't care for. I was pleasantly surprised when I used it in three dishes last night.
I prepared a chili using ground venison. My son is an excellent hunter and keeps his family and us with plenty of venison. He is also generous in that he helps families by providing fresh meat for them as well. As many of you are aware, venison is a very lean red meat. I usually add a bit of olive oil when sautéing. This time I used a little Paradise coconut oil. It works great!

Next I cooked two vegetables - fresh yellow (summer) squash with onion and fresh carrots. The squash was cooked typical Southern style by using the coconut oil (Southerns usually use bacon drippings or butter/margarine), salt, pepper, a small amount of water, and chopped onions. Wonderful! Again, no taste of the coconut oil.

The fresh carrots were simply peeled, cut in small chunks, a small amount of water, salt and pepper, and coconut oil and then cooked until tender. These were absolutely wonderful!

I realize that the folks at Paradise say that this coconut oil has a number of uses including using it on your skin. I haven't done that at this time, but it is good to know that a simple product such as Paradise Natural Coconut Oil has multiple uses.

DISCLOSURE:  received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
