Spectrum Organic All Vegetable Shortening -- 24 oz
This works perfectly for a crisco substitute. No trans fat, no hydrogenated oil! Great taste and texture!

Great product for a great price!!
I got spectrum shortening to make buttercream icing for the cake decoration class. It is better than "butter" buttercream. Unlike Crisco, it doesn't give a foul taste and smell. Also it does not feel too greasy.

My husband and I use this product exclusively in all our baking needs. It makes wonderful pie crusts, breads, desserts. It's really a nice product.

I use this in pie crust and other baking as an alternative to yucky Crisco. It works well and is organic!

Not Thrilled About the Expiration Date
The product is usually great, smooth, flavorless, and easy to substitute for shortening in recipes. I've gotten it before many times.
My last order, I ordered 8 of these. The expiration date was less than a year away. (The shelf life for palm oil should be much longer. Previous orders of the same product had much longer expiration dates, so this was obviously an old batch.) The first tub I opened had apparently melted previously and was harder than I'm used to, and of an inconsistent texture. Haven't opened the other tubs yet, but definitely not of the quality I've come to expect. However, that said, the batch of donuts I was frying seemed to come out fine.
