Shocked at the number of posters who said they use lard and/or bacon grease. Really, in this day and age? That is certain slow suicide. What does your doctor say about what you cook with?

Sorry to burst your bubble but the whole "lard is bad for you" is actually a result of a marketing campaign from Crisco when it first came out to get house wives to buy it instead.

first of all Lard is lower in saturated fat than butter and most animal fats.
It higher in heart healthy monosaturated fats and in it's natural form it has )0 trans fat.





Bad for you today. Great for you tomorrow. Horrible for you later. The fountain of youth later yet. And on and on. If you like it, eat it. If you don't, don't.

Don't go by what you read in the populist commercial mass media.

Mayonnaise can go rancid too. It has been a real problem since they started packing it in plastic. There are some brands I refuse to buy because they are so commonly rancid that I got tired of returning them to the store.

Doesn't anyone else get an odd fishy aroma from heated canola oil? Stopped using it the first time we tried due to that.
No. I've never had this issue, and I don't refrigerate cooking oils.

Buy a better quality oil.

Olive oil mostly.
I keep canola around for certain uses, usually when I need to use a lot of oil (frying chicken for example). I think it has a neutral flavor.

High heat oil for using cast iron is either ghee or avocado oil.

I was visiting someone's house recently and only had light olive oil to cook with. UGH.

I don't do a lot of deep frying, so when I need just a couple of tablespoons of grease to saute something in a pan or whatever, it's usually either butter, olive oil or bacon grease.

I have vegetable oil, canola oil and peanut oil in the cabinet and use any of them for other things.

I'm kind of amazed that people use oil so frequently that they can have 4 or more varieties and use them up before they go rancid! I don't use oil that much and when I do, only a couple tablespoons.
