This Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil is a truly unrefined coconut oil. This coconut oil is made on Mt. Banahaw and surrounding areas from coconuts. Coconuts are used fresh (within 24-48 hours of harvest) from small family farms on Mt. Banahaw and other rural places in Quezon Province, the coconut capital of the Philippines. Only the highest quality coconuts are hand-picked from each harvest. The volcanic soil of Mt. Banahaw makes these coconuts some of the most nutritionally rich coconuts in the world! Buy it here!

Hand-made in small batches – not mass-produced by machine

Wet-milled from fresh coconut milk

High heat used to extract antioxidants (why cold-pressed is NOT best)

Tested for the herbicide glyphosate

Preheat oven to 450° F.

Preparation Time: 30 minutes

Crust:

Filling:

Crust:

Combine flour, sugar, salt, butter and coconut oil in a food processor for about 5 seconds. Sprinkle ice water over the flour mixture and process until the pastry just begins to come together, about 10 seconds; you should still be able to see small pieces of butter in it.

Transfer the pastry to a work surface, gather it together and pat into a disk. Wrap the pastry in plastic wrap or wax paper and refrigerate until chilled, or roll out pastry and use it right away.

Filling:

Peel, halve and core the apples, and slice them crosswise about ¼ inch thick. Set aside the larger center slices, and coarsely chop the edge and any broken slices.

In a small bowl combine sugar and cinnamon. Set aside.

Preheat the oven to 400° F.

On a lightly floured work surface, roll out the pastry to a 12-by-12-inch circle and transfer to a large rimmed baking sheet.

Spread the chopped apples over the pastry to within 1 inch of the edge. Drizzle the honey over the chopped apples. Decoratively arrange the apple slices on top.

Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar evenly over the apples and dot with the pieces of butter and coconut oil.

Fold the pastry edge up and over the apples to create a 1-inch border. Brush with milk.

Bake the tart for about 1 hour, until the pastry is nicely browned and crisp and all of the apples are tender.

Transfer the pan to a rack and let the tart cool. Serve warm or at room temperature.
