If anyone else is a chemistry nerd, like me, there's a fatty acid profile of butterfat, palm oil, and coconut oil here. Food is so much more enjoyable when you know its chemical structure. :p

This is what my coconut oil looks like at the moment (new bottle, purchased on Friday)...

It does make it easier to measure, I find. :)

Beef tallow
 
My recent search for saturated fats has led me to rendering beef fat. I can't have butter or eggs, and don't eat pork, so was relying a lot on vegetable oils and margarin.

A few days ago I tried my hand at rendering beef fat (which is called tallow - rendered pork fat is called lard - same thing, though). It wasn't all that difficult, and I now have a butter-like fat to use in cooking and spreading on things. Chicken fried in this fat is to die for!

I'm glad to have a source of saturated fat.

I also use coconut oil in baking and in hot drinks. Don't much like the flavor of it in fried foods.

Well, I eat it out of the spoon...I lick it like I did peanut butter...I prefer the tasteless ones for that, but do have some with a bit of flavor...

I am just not going to watch a video that long, but searched for the text and this seems to be a part of it.

I'm glad to see LewRockwell.com is back up . . . I couldn't access it the other day.
