Ep 70: Stored Food Gives you a High Return on Investment
« on: October 10, 2008, 12:21:18 PM »
Jack, I was curious about changing out Vegetable oil for Olive oil.  Wife and I never use Vegetable oil for anything anymore.  If we were to choose an oil, it would be olive.  Just don't know how well it stores.

Thanks.

If you leave it sealed and keep it from getting over 90 degrees it stores as well as anything.  The issue with olive oil is when you fry or saute to hot with it, it produces toxins that normal veggy oil doesn't.

So it will store very well but should be used at the end or cooking not as a primary cooking oil if you want to get all the healthy benefits of olive oil and none of the dark side.

Did not think you did at all. Wanted to get more information on how hot it has to be, etc. Thanks Jack!

I had never even heard that about oils.  I told my wife about it this morning and she was baffled.  Of course, we don't use it for deep frying or anything, merely using a bit to sautee vegetables, cook meat, etc for a little extra flavor.  Neither of us have ever gotten it hot enough to smoke, which seems to be where the dark magic happens.

I had no idea either that oils would release toxins if heated to high.  That just seems wrong somehow.  Why isn't that more well known?

Years ago they "produced" a "study" that said bacon grease did pretty much the same thing.  Use it for cooking, it produced carcinogens......like I'm gonna stop using bacon grease in my skillets ::)  Last I'd heard, that "study" was financed by the makers of PAM.  Not sure of the truthfulness of either, but I still use bacon grease over PAM.

I saute with butter or more accurately Ghee (clarified butter), if I want olive oil I add it at the end.  That lets more of the delicate flavor of the olive oil survive.

I totally agree!  I save all my bacon grease and use it for cooking as well.  (Pam is ok for baking, I guess.)
