- Peanut Oil
- Peanut oil has a pleasing and sometimes light nutty flavor. In addition to its great taste, peanut oil is perfect for deep-frying because it has a unique property (visit turkeyfrying.net for some great cooking ideas with peanut oil!) It does not absorb the flavor of other foods cooked in the oil. Therefore, you can cook several different items and each will maintain their own great taste. Peanut oil is also one of the world’s traditional deep-frying oils because it can reach such a high temperature which keeps the outside of the food crispy and the inside very moist. Peanut oil works well with all types of cooking and has been the oil of choice for frying by numerous restaurants for many years because it tastes great.
