How To Make Coconut Oil


I have recently wanted to make more of the basics at home as I learn more about homesteading. Coconut oil had been on my list for some time. I found this recipe via YouTube, and I have to say, making coconut oil is rather easy. The hardest part is getting the coconuts open. I used a hammer. The next hardest thing, would be finding a cheap source of coconuts. They were rather expensive in the grocery store. The product is a fresh smelling, version that I would say is way better than store bought.
