Palmin is a vegetable-based cooking fat that can be used similar to lard or shortening.

It is the same as the vegetable-based cooking fat called Copha, except there are two varieties of Palmin: one comes in a tub, which is almost spreadable, and the other comes in a block like Copha.

The blocks come in 250g (1/2 pound) portions.

Palmin is available in many European delicatessens in North America.


Coconut butter or 2 parts shortening or lard, with 1 part creamed coconut.
