Brierley asks: What oil do you cook with?

COMMENTS POSTEDsort icon

I was told by a German engineer that lived in Canada for many yrs...that canola stands for Canadian oil...and is used only as machine oil? I do know it is from hybrid rape and rape is deadly poisonous...I use olive oil for low heat and either sunflower or safflower for high heat cooking

I cook pretty much all the time with canola oil. Only time I use another kind is in Italian recipes and I would use Olive oil. Even use Canola in my baking recipes.

I too avoid GMOs and, though it is difficult, anything to do with Monsanto. I stick to virgin olive oil, coconut oil and real butter. Fats are not the evil that we have been led to believe, but unnatural fats can certainly do a number on your health.

I prefer olive oil to cook with (for one thing, my husband thinks he doesn't like canola oil. Olive oil is also very healthful, having lots of omega-3's. It's also more versatile, since you can use it for a bread dipping sauce.

I've always heard that olive oil is good to cook with. How does it compare to canola oil?

We lived in Spain for almost 20 years and I can't imagine not cooking with olive oil.

I use evoo as my first choice. Canola is second and I like Peanut Oil for popcorn...don't know if is that healthy, but tastes better than canola for that purpose.
