what type of fat to cook with?
which type of cooking oil is best to cook with. Which is the most in saturated fat to cook with? i use olive oil for somethings but if i want to fry something I usually use canola oil but i don't think that is good right?
which should I use?

Thank You

I get the LouAnna brand of coconut oil at Wallie and cook with that. I think olive oil can be used if you are sauteeing, but not high heat frying.

i don't have a wallie's where i live. what about crisco oil?

COCOJ 06-10-2009 01:05 PM

actually i meant to say what about cooking with pure lard?

CarolynF 06-10-2009 03:01 PM

That's fine..Lard..

I don't think crisco is so great to cook with.

I use peanut oil, sunflower oil or olive oil and i am satisfied with it.

I use Spectrum non-hydrogenated palm oil for a solid shortening, macadamia nut oil for a liqiud and butter. Lard is also a good choice. I also have cold expeller pressed coconut oil and the plain stuff coconut oil. Boy, I have a lot of fat!

However, you can't get olive oil too hot or it will break down.

I used to think it was too but now I use coconut oil (virgin and expellar pressed) and rice bran oil almost exclusively. I don't even buy olive oil anymore.

I'm interested to try palm oil. I meant to order some with my last Tropical Traditions order but forgot. That one is definitely next on my list to try.

I use butter exclusively for pan searing meats, clarified in most cases. Oil wise, prefer Peanut/Olive/Canola/Vegetable in that order. Peanut Oil seems to tolerate the higher heats in my wok so that is used most.
