What is the difference between coconut butter and coconut oil?
Coconut oil is simply the oil that's been extracted from the coconut meat, while coconut butter is made from coconut flesh that's been ground into a spreadable butter-like paste.
How do you use coconut butter?
It can be used as spread, added to smoothies, curries, cakes, cookies, drizzled over fresh fruit or added to coffee. You do not want to use it to sauté anything. The solid will fry in the pan.
Should I refrigerate after opening?
The butter will solidify in temperatures lower than 76 degrees. If refrigerated, the butter will become too hard to spread or spoon out of the jar.
How do I liquefy my coconut butter?
If temperature is lower than 73°F, warm some water in a pot and place your jar of motha' butta in the pot for a few minutes, or until desired texture is reached.
I just received my jar and there are white circled bits on top. Is this normal?
Yes! Due to the high volume of oil within coconut, it likes to separate itself from the fiber of coconut itself. Warm it up in the microwave or stove top via hot water, and your butta' will blend back together.
How do I reheat one serving size of coconut butter without warming the whole Jar?
Motha's Suggestion: Warm the entire jar, then pour the Coconut Butter into ice cube trays in either fridge or freezer. Once your Coconut Butter solidifies, pop out the cubes and store in container in fridge for easy access. Now your butta' is already in perfect serving sizes ready for use.
