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.

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.

Default 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...
