In today’s video I show you how to make fresh coconut oil the traditional Indonesian way, this is how my mother-in-law makes it! Even today most households here still make their own coconut oil, and I have to say there is something quite special about having fresh, handmade oil to cook with (and use on your skin too!).
Every once in a while someone will tell me they’ve read such great information about coconut oil and ask if they should start taking it as a supplement, as in a few tablespoons a day? My response is “No, no, no!! (unless you want and need to be gaining weight and nothing else works!!).” Coconut oil is fine to cook and bake with, but I don’t believe in consuming extra quantities of it as a supplement. In today’s video I discuss why!
