Even though my lovely hubby bought me a new container of lard,
I’ve been experimenting with other high heat cooking oils.
Don’t get me wrong. I love lard but, due to my laziness, I don’t want to use a cooking fat that requires me to liquefy it before I use it. I really love the bottle of macadamia nut oil I purchased over X-mas but I’ve been using it so much that I’m almost finished with it.
After trolling the Internet, I decided that I should purchase some avocado oil.
It’s purported to have the same health benefits as olive oil BUT it has a much higher smoke point of 491° F. Plus, it’s listed in my Whole30 Success Guide as one of the BEST sources of monounsaturated fats. Nice.
Thanks to Amazon Prime, a two-pack arrived on my doorstep in two days. The avocado oil is very mild tasting oil and I’ve been subbing it in for olive oil in everything I’ve cooked today. Me likey.1
