Julia when I expanded the ingredient list it said just coconut oil. Am I missing something? I don't see any added ghee.

We've recently "discovered" Carrington Farms Coconut Oil & Ghee already mixed together in a tub - in Branson, MO we found it the first time in a Country Mart. Then when we were home near Wichita, we've found it at Walmart. This is the form we have been using, in these little tubs:

carringtonfarms.com/coconut-o
il-tub-or
ganic-virgin-12oz/


They have other ghees and coconut oils and I've not tried those yet...

Need to make me some more fat bombs tomorrow too...

Tracy, that recipe looks great! I keep my Fat Bombs simple, but I'm ready for a change. I do equal parts coconut oil and nut butter (the kind you grind fresh at the store. I normally do a cup of each which make a dozen. I pour it into cupcake papers in my muffin tin. I also add two Stevia packets and a little kosher salt. I've done almond, pecan, and peanut butters. Almond has been my favorite. I am ready for a change, though!

Joanne - the ghee is formed by separating the milk solids out of the butter. It has a higher smoking point - doesn't burn as easily- and has no milk proteins so it cooks clearer and doesn't form those white bubbles you get in the pan from butter.

I just use butter....

My mother always had a stick of butter out.
I have never seen a problem with butter going bad.

I wondered the purpose of ghee. Thanks for explaining the reduction of carbs.

thats great!!

to add, though. I dont refridgerate butter...well..to be clear, i buy 3 CASES of 24 pounds of butter every holiday season from Aldi, when it goes on sale, usually for under $2 a pound. i do keep it in a fridge, but take out a pound at a time to use. and i've never, ever, EVER had it go bad on me. no off taste, no problems. and sometimes that pound lasts me 2 weeks. or 3...i usually go through it by 2...but have gone as long as three.

We recently found a "new to us" product when on vacation in Branson last month. Looked it up to order online just in case I couldn't find it at home. Lo! And Behold! I found the same stuff at our Walmart! It's Carrington Farms Coconut Oil & Ghee mixed together in a container kind of like what you might see margarine in.



I have made ghee before and it's okay if you like fussing with stuff for an hour. The solids removed are the protein particle that have the carbs (and are what spoiles when butter is left out at room temp for several days.). By straining it out, the clear part cools back to a fat that stays spreadable at room temperature and is all healthy fats, no carbs.

So you might want to look for that to keep it simple.

I've been buying Nutiva by the gallon from the company for years. About 3-4 times a year, on their Tuesday sales, the gallon will be less than $50. Back then it was a big issue ("Back then" roughly 10 years ago, when my girlfriend and I went in on the coconut oil.). There is another company that I have had mixed results with but I don't want to go into it now because a) I'm sleepy and b) most people have a lot more local sources of coconut oil, what with the various health food chains like TJ's, Whole Foods Market, Natural Grocers, Sprouts etc as well as Walmart, Target, and the various larger grocery chains. So it's easier to buy a quart or smaller and try it for personal taste preferences and move on to another brand.

It is interesting how we were brought up to avoid fats.
I enjoy coffee at work in the mornings 1 -2 cups.
I always feel guilty putting in a heaping tsp of creamer. Now I come to find out there is pitiful amount of fat in it and I need to go for the gusto "Heavy Whipping Cream!" to bring up my micros. My how decadent. :-)

I have been given the advice to reduce protein which means I need to up my fat.

Please share your favorite fat bomb recipe. I am on the hunt.

First review of recipes shows coconut oil in may recipes. Have you seen the variety of them at the store. How can I tell the flavor of them? (They are not cheep)

Have a nice evening.
