What are your favorite one or two oils for high temperatures for stir fry and for roasting?

— Marsha Seidelman


You know generally speaking any refined oil is fine, you know some oils like, you know avocado oil or popular these days and you know, there are certainly others like canola oil. But if you're concerns if you put a particular concern beyond the smoke point such as The nutrient profile of a of an oil I'm going to let you do the reading on that, okay? But I mean otherwise in terms of oils that are effective, you know at that those higher temperatures most any refined oil. Okay is is going to be fine. You know keep in mind that. Yeah oil refinement varies, you know that filtering process varies. And you know you can you can even find some olive oils that can be used for dry heat cooking. Although you might want to drop the the temperature just a little bit. Okay, but so there's some different ways to approach this question. All right, but give it a try and see what might appeal to you. Thank you.
