I ordered this on ebay recently and paid a simliar price to the above, however, i wanted to point out that i have since seen it in my local Tesco for around 3 pounds. I ordered to use as a substitute for cocoa butter in home made chocolate but didn't think it was as good- chocolate texture too smooth.

American vegetable shortening, as you would expect. My husband is Canadian so some of his family recipes call for ingredients we don't seem to have here, this was one of them. Very pricey for what it is but that has to take into account the import costs for the company selling it. A little goes a long way and he appreciates having recipes from home, so it's worth it.

This product is not similar to Copha which is an Australian product. Copha sets hard similar to lard. Would not recommend it as a substitute.

Bought this for my mum as she makes approx 250 mince pies each Christmas & had previously used Trex for pastry - this product is now discontinued so she was desperate to find a substitute.

Crisco is the answer - her pastry is extremely short & she is a convert
