Creamed Coconut Jars Oil Level

Creamed Coconut Jars

Why do Creamed Coconut jars appear to have different levels of oil on top?


The video you can see above shows you oil separation in one of our Creamed Coconut jars. You can see the level of oil separation in this Creamed Coconut jar is less than the one in the photo above.

The particular jar of Creamed Coconut Jar of Rich Gold Creamed Coconut in that video was manufactured in April 2014. It shows no sign of any deterioration. The video was made in May 2018! There is nothing wrong with this jar. The reason why we unfurled the wrapper was to demonstrate the level of separation.

It appears that the level of ground meat in each of the jars does not change within the Rich Gold brand, it is just their separation which changes.

I believe there is a simple reason why there are different levels of separation. It will depend on the temperature of the air when they are separated and factors related to that.

The colour of the ground meat, the darker area, varies slightly between the photos and video. Therefore there are two variables.

  1. the colour of the meat
  2. the thickness of the white Virgin Coconut Oil area

There is a pattern, with the darker meat, the oil layer is thicker. This indicates the oil has separated more, leaving a darker, drier meat.

Restore the balance of oil and ground flesh in your Creamed Coconut jars

Melting the jar, and mixing the contents will restore the oil back to the ground coconut meat.

This can be done with sunlight, microwave, or placing the jar in a warm place.

Warm places can be in in hot water, over hot water, or over a heater or fire, or next to a fan heater.

Crunchy Oat Coconut Biscuits by Marie Nicasi

Crunchy Oat Coconut Biscuits

CRUNCHY OAT COCONUT BISCUITS

Crunchy Oat Coconut Biscuits made with Oil, Oats, Desiccated Coconut and Coconut Flour if desired.

Our Coconut Resort Blog reader Marie Nicasi has shared with her Crunchy Oat Coconut Biscuits recipe. Let me highlight one amazing thing about this recipe. It has Desiccated Coconut in it, but you may add Coconut Flour instead of some of the Desiccated.

Up to 1 cup of Coconut Flour can be added to these biscuits.

So clearly these biscuits are designed with fibre in mind. Dietary fibre is important for gut health.

Fibre in your diet helps to:

  • cleans the tubes
  • clears the system
  • keeps you regular

Our Coconut Flour is up to 38% fibre, and contributes very little Coconut taste to food.

[gmc_recipe 12866]

Water tips

Here is a tip I’d like to reiterate. Our Gold Sprinkle Raw Organic Desiccated Coconut is full oil. It is not defatted. That will impact on the amount of water you may require, compared with using a cheap, defatted Desiccated Coconut, which may require more water.

Also, if you choose to substitute some of the desiccated with our Raw Organic Coconut Flour, once again, that may require more water. But add it in gradually.

Coconut Flour Crepe Cake | Grain Free | Dairy Free

Coconut Flour Crêpe Cake

Coconut Flour Crepe Cake

This pretty pile of Crêpe makes a Coconut Flour Crêpe Cake. (Gather the teenagers or a friend or two, you’ll struggle to eat it all by yourself!)

Why Coconut Flour with Crêpes?

Coconut Flour keeps you regular… and so do these berries. That is one reason why you really ought to make an excuse to try this Coconut Flour Crêpe Cake on a special occasion coming up in your calendar.

Crêpes with cream provide a wonderful celebration mood to the table setting. But some people just can’t handle grain and dairy. This recipe is adeptly adapted by Rose, from TheCleanDish.com to accommodate grain and dairy free diet restrictions.

Are there special guidelines for using Coconut Flour?

Readers have asked for Coconut Flour recipes. Well, this is one. But let’s remind ourselves that Coconut Flour requires a little bit of understanding. Generally speaking Coconut Flour can be added to ordinary flour at a rate of 15%, but anything beyond that requires eggs, or you can get a similar effect with ground flax or chia seeds.

Also, recipes with flour run the risk of going wrong if sifted flour is measured instead of unsifted flour. This guideline applies to Coconut Flour as well.

Below you’ll find the recipe. Be sure to look at the website link below the recipe for instructions on how to make this dish a success.

[gmc_recipe 12821]

Raw Chocolate Nectarine TartRaw Chocolate Nectarine Tart – Julia and Libby Wholefoods

Raw Chocolate Nectarine Tart

Do you love nectarines and chocolate? Raw nectarines are juicy and emphasise the delicious flavour of the fruit. That’s why you really need to gather more nectarines, and more chocolate, because you’re going to be tempted to dip the pieces of fruit into the chocolate, while you’re working. Okay? That’s also why Julia and Libby love this tart recipe! (Well that’s what I say, anyway).

Quinoa Porridge Coconut Chips Julia and Libby Blog

Quinoa Porridge Coconut Chips from Julia and Libby Blog

Do you like a creamy warm porridge in the winter months?
I for one just love to have Coconut Dry Goods every single morning! I alternate between desiccated medium fine, threads, chips (flakes) and desiccated fine. Coconut Dry Goods go well with oat or quinoa porridge.

Grey-Line1
Quinoa Porridge Coconut Chips

Julia and Libby who are sisters, live apart, one in Australia and one in New Zealand. This article with its emphasis on quinoa flakes and Anchor Organic Milk is definately written in New Zealand.

For your reference we have a list of links about Raw milk, which is not the same product as Fonterra’s Anchor Organic Milk. As Village Milk say, Fonterra don’t sell this (Raw Milk) product. I believe there will be an alternative organic milk hitting the supermarkets this season in New Zealand.

If you are in another country, you’ll need to look things up for yourself. Here in New Zealand cows eat grass…it’s healthy, you know?

Now back to this quinoa porridge recipe.

Ingredients:

Porridge:
1 cup quinoa flakes
1 cup Anchor Organic Milk or make Coconut Milk
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
Pinch sea salt

Toppings:
1 cup mixed berries
2 tablespoons manuka honey
1/4 cup walnuts, roughly chopped.
1/4 cup coconut chips or desiccated coconut

Head over to the Julia and Libby blog for more instructions.

After you’ve checked out that post, you may also interested in these other quinoa articles we’ve posted in the past.
