For my palm oil, when I get it in the container, I'll normally heat it up to liquid by placing the container in a saucepan of water and heating it until its liquid. Then Ill transfer the liquidified palm oil into a large mouthed jar with a screw top lid (from the 99 cent store).I’ve read that when melting palm oil I should heat the whole container and weigh out what I need. Do I just pour the rest of the oil back into the container and let it cool, then reheat the whole container again next time? Are there other oils that I need to treat the same way? Also, I read that I should melt solid oils before I add liquid oils. Does that mean I can heat multiple solids together like crisco and coconut oil in the same pot? Thanks!
When I need to use the palm oil for a recipe, I then just scoop out what I need in its solid form (this takes a little elbow grease) and then I will heat it on the stove with any other solid oil.
