It’s no secret I like all things coconut, so today I decided to treat myself to some Artisana Raw Organic Coconut Butter at Whole Paycheck.  I wanted to spoon some up right away but when I brought it home it was as hard as a rock.  The label says to heat it up to 85 F to spread but since I already had the SousVide Supreme heated up to 135 F, I popped it in for about 5 minutes.  When I took it out, it was mostly liquified, but I still had to stir, stir, stir, and stir.  Here’s how it looks when it’s nice and spreadable:

I just spooned myself another taste just to make sure that it was still spreadable (in the name of science and all) and I’m happy to report that it’s still liquid-y five hours after I initially melted it.  Coconut butter tastes yummy – like creamy, coconut flavored peanut butter.  I’m not sure I’ll be putting it on anything because I’ll just eat it straight out of the jar but the label (which melted off in my SousVide Supreme) says that you can add it to smoothies, savory dishes, or desserts.  I’m gonna have to check again in a few minutes to make sure it didn’t solidify…
