Tropical Traditions Organic Palm Shortening Review and Giveaway

I had the pleasure of reviewing Organic Palm Shortening by Tropical Traditions. I've been enjoying the products of Tropical Traditions for a while now. They are one of my favorite companies online! I believe their coconut oil is the best. You can read more about the coconut oil here.

Trying their shortening was interesting. When I opened the container, I immediately noticed the whipped look of the product. I also noticed that it wasn't bleachy white. Instead, it had a pleasant, natural off-white color. I used it for frying a few times,in recipes calling for either butter or shortening, and the biggest test of all- PIE CRUST. I'm pleased to report that it was wonderful in every recipe. This is an excellent product.

I fried my Okra Fritters in the Organic Palm Shortening.

     I mentioned that I made a pie crust with this shortening. It crisped up beautifully, and had no greasy taste.
Here is a picture of that beautiful apple pie.

Uh,oh!
No picture. :o
The pie disappeared so quickly that I didn't have a chance to photograph it!
