Replacing Palm Oil with Vegetable Shortening
I have been having a tough time finding Palm Oil locally (I have since ordered some) but was wondering what I could replace the Palm Oil portion of a recipe with that would still keep it "vegetarian" so-to-speak.
Visit my page on Soap Making Oils
and scroll down to the heading "Love That Creamy Lather"
. You will find a good selection of oils that can replace palm oil in a recipe.
You can also use vegetable shortening from the grocery store. Read the ingredients on the label and you will probably find that it is made up of soybean oil and palm oil.
Be sure to run any recipe through a lye calculator before using it.
