I have to admit, I had no idea what to expect when I asked to try Tropical Traditions Organic Palm Shortening.
I love Tropical Traditions products, however, and I was certain that I would find some incredible way to use this.
I was right. I love it.
Palm shortening can be used like oil for frying, it can be used like butter for drizzling on popcorn... okay - maybe not exactly the same flavor, but really, don't you just want the salt anyway? It holds the salt on well and doesn't taste bad.
I have used it for fajitas, popcorn, saute'd onions and peppers, on toast. Not really on toast, I don't think I would actually consider that. Do you get my point though? Tropical Tradition's palm shortening can be used in a variety of ways, in a variety of recipes. It can replace oils, butters, and lard to make recipes a bit healthier.
I also have to admit that I was overwhelmed by the size of this tub of shortening. I called my sister when I opened the box. This gallon of shortening will last a very long time! It's well worth the price - regular price is 40.75. Right now it's on sale for $30.65. Don't miss out!
Tropical Traditions has offered to give one of my readers a tub of Organic Palm Shortening to try for themselves!
