Mac-nut oil
 
I read something in passing about the benefits of macadamian (you know what i mean) nut oil. I can't find it though.

Has anyone cooked with this?

I just bought some online and got it yesterday, I haven't cooked with it yet, I'm sitting here thinking what I can make with it for dinner tonight. I will let you know when I do. You can buy it online at many places, just google, or you can get it at netrition.com
NOW Foods Macadamia Nut Oil
I read that it was supposed to better for you than olive oil, and you can also use it at higher temps than evoo

I love mac nut oil. It does however impart a very roasted nut flavor to everything. I mix 1/2 cup of mac nut oil with 1 stick of soft butter and some sea salt to make a great butter blend.

I finally cooked, when you heat the oil it has a very nutty smell!! I could taste the undertones in my food, but it wasn't overpowering. I can imagine that it might not mix with some foods, but not sure what yet. I made scallops and shrimp and they were fine.

Try cold pressed extra virgin avocado oil
 
Light tastes accentuates food natural flavors, extremely high smoke point 518 degrees, helps lower bad cholesterol ,natures nutrient booster, high in oleic acid aids in the absorption of omega 3 into cell membranes.
