My in-laws want to fry a turkey but my mother in-law is not a fan of peanuts. I would like to fry the turkey in peanut oil. Would anyone suggest using another type of oil?
Are you channeling your best self with this comment? (If you're not sure, check out our Code of Conduct.)
Any refined vegetable oil with a high smoke point will do the job: corn, safflower, cottonseed, soybean, a "frying blend" mixture. I prefer not to fry in canola oil (it develops a slightly fishy aroma that I find off-putting) but that would also work.
Seriously, though, I doubt your peanut-disliking mother-in-law would even know you fried in peanut oil unless you told her. Refined peanut oil doesn't taste much like peanuts--or anything, really.
That's what I was thinking too! It doesn't taste like peanuts and the flavor is amazing! Thank you!!
