Who here has used coconut oil for deep frying I'm thinking of opening that vat of coconut oil from tropical traditions to make wings tonight. What else is good in fried coconut oil that you've made?

I just finished eating the first batch of wings and it was AMAZING!!! they turned out way better than expected. I put a big hunk of grass fed Ghee in the sauce while it simmered and It was tasty. I set my grease to about 350 and cooked a dozen at a time for 10-12 minutes.

Partial. My favorite method for getting a rich-colored, very crispy skin on poultry is to rub coconut oil over the bird before roasting. Fabulous! It's a high-temp oil so deep frying should work fine.

I deep fried sweet potatoes in coconut oil, and they were terrific--coconut oil is great for frying, it really holds up well. I did it in a saucepan, but have since purchased a small "Fry Daddy," which I hope to try soon. My stove is pretty iffy on temperature control, so I expect a better result from the Fry Daddy. I think frying wings in coconut oil sounds like a great idea. And by the time you douse them in grass-fed butter and hot sauce...well, my mouth is watering.

My children love their hash browns fried in coconut oil. Well they don't actually know what I fry them in--but they eat it. I think it makes them crispier than tallow or bacon grease. I LOVE to fry ripe/black plantains in coconut oil and drizzle with sea salt.
