coconut oil / super fine salt

vch Feb 15, 2009 07:40 AM

Hello all, new to these boards. Nice site. First time poster.

I was wondering if anyone knows where in Ottawa i can buy:

coconut oil (virgin/extra virgin)?
(plain) super fine salt (normal or sea, non-iodized) generally used for dusting nuts, popcorn, etc?

Any help much appreciated. Thanks.

    Any Middle Eastern grocery will have it,... Try Mid East Food Centre:

    They will have coconut oil and in regards to superfine salt, here's a tip for you to save you the search.

    Put the salt in a coffee grinder and whiz it up. I used to do that to make "popcorn salt" which is another name for super finely ground salt. But, just refine the salt yourself - you'll do good.

    Now in Toronto Nasr Grocery has coconut oil and all sorts of other exotic oils.

      Try a health food store for the coconut oil. Re the sea salt, I buy mine at Bulk Barn. I live in Toronto though.
