Last Fall, our family reviewed the Organic Coconut Oil from Tropical Traditions. It was an interesting experience and confirmed that Mr. O is not fond of anything with a coconut flavor.
This time around, I am featuring a product that has NO odor or taste to it and may be a permanent replacement for Crisco in our house. Considering there are NO trans fats in the Organic Palm Shortening and it is shelf stable, I think we might might have a winner on our hands!
To test out how the palm shortening does in baking, I used the recipe for Coconut Flour Baking Powder Biscuits. Since we do not have coconut flour in the house, I just did a mixture of all purpose and whole wheat flour blend that I had in the freezer leftover from grinding for breads. Also, the recipe calls for whole milk and we just had 1% in the house.
The shortening cut in quite nicely….
After adding milk, you have to knead in some more flour…
Biscuits can touch for baking…
The toaster oven was the perfect size for this small batch…
Golden Brown and ready to eat…
Strawberry jam complements the biscuits…
Little J samples the goods….
R and D dive into their super yummy breakfast….
If the pictures of the boys wolfing down their surprise breakfast isn’t a good indication, I’ll share that they want to ALL learn how to make these biscuits. R is going first to have them with chicken and veggies (sort of a make your own chicken and dumplings on your plate arrangement.) And, I am thinking of testing it out in pie crust for Mr. O to bake some yummy pies.
You can purchase a gallon of the Organic Palm Shortening from Tropical Traditions. It retails for $35.75, but at the time of my writing this article it is on sale for $19.85 (changes after the 16th.)
