what olive oil is the best to fry with?
Barbara is a trusted source on General Cooking.
Here's a long discussion about olive oil that we had recently:
pierino is a trusted source on General Cooking and Tough Love.
For deep frying something with a high smoke point, such as canola or peanut oil. Smoke point means "before it burns or sets itself on fire."
Sam is a trusted home cook.
All of the whole foods 360 brand are reasonably priced and decent flavor.
If you have a cost co membership their olive oil is well priced and flavorful also and very well rated. While some will say don't waste extra virgin on frying. I do. With the 360 WF brand, and the costco.
Smoke point is an issue tho. Olive oil has a low smoke point. tone it down with some Ghee (Clarified butter) or duck fat. But if you have duck fat on hand, just use that.
