Where do I find coconut oil for cooking?
I'm trying a recipe this weekend that calls for virgin coconut oil, anybody know where I can find it?

I have Wegman's, A&P, ShopRite and Weis grocery stores around me....

I don't now about virgin coconut oil but I know regular coconut oil is at Wal-mart and they have organic brands at Hi-health stores. Maybe hi-health has virgin.

Health food stores, if you have one. That's the only place I see it around here. I ordered mine from iherb. It was so much cheaper than the store (Whole Foods). Nutiva brand is really good. It's virgin, unbleached, and organic. I only cook with coconut oil and butter.

I looked all over for it myself, and the only luck I had was at GNC. Hope that helps. :)

They sell it in our regular grocery stores, it's typically in the organics dry goods section. The other place I've seen it is near the balsamic vinegar.

One of the bigger Wegman's stores would definitely have it, not sure about a smaller one. Check in the Nature's Marketplace section. I did a search on Wegmans.com and they showed 2 brands that they carry - Nutiva and Spectrum.

I have the Spectrum organic virgin oil and I got it at a small natural marketplace. I love it!
It's funny to see though, on colder days it's solid, almost like the consistency of crisco and on warmer days like today, it's liquid in a jar!
Makes cooking taste great and makes a great hair gel/spray alternative!
