I've been using canola oil. The farmers here grow canola. I like it but I have been thinking of using something else. I can't use olive, sunflower, nuts, or Avacado. Any other ideas???? Can I use flax oil for baking, or grape seed oil? I would like a all purpose one for chocolate chip cookies, pancakes etc. I don't use it much for salad dressing.
Any suggestions????? I am going shopping in the morning to Costco.
I had a friend make a comment that I use Canola oil and yet I look outside my window and I see it blooming right now. They say it isn't as "pure" or as good for you with gentic tampering or something
I haven't used olive oil since my tongue went fuzzy with it one time and I was told not to use it again until I am closer to town to test it out.
I did just buy Grape Seed oil from Costco at a decent price so will try that out for baking today. I hope it is good.
Seems like no matter what you eat now a days, it is wrong. Yet my sil ate healthy, excerisized excesivly and she is fighting the big C.
Sometimes you just don't know what to do anymore, so you just do things in moderation I guess.
I remember as a child there was a "belief" that cranberries caused cancer. A decade later, they were the cure for bladder infections.
I grew up with corn oil for baking (in my Italian family olive oil was always used for cooking). I switched to canola because I was told it was healthier many years ago. I think I've gotten to old to worry anymore.
I use extra virgin olive oil if I won't be heating it and where I want the flavor (salad dressings, etc)
I use olive oil if I'll be heating something to moderate temps
I use olive oil with a little vegetable oil for higher temps
I use vegetable oil for really high temps
I use peanut oil for high temps where the taste also matters (stir fries, french fries)
