There seems to be several on here that are quite good in the kitchen. I have a question pertaining to oil.
I do not cook a great deal, due to the fact that my wife and I like to eat and most of what I cook is not palatable. But I do enjoy frying catfish and crappie, and turkeys. I have always used peanut oil while deep frying, because that is what was used by those that showed me how to cook them.
My question is, what is the reasoning in using peanut oil and not just regular vegetable oil. Does it heat differently, taste different, and or cook diffirent. Any help would be great.
The main reason I ask, recently we did a fish fry and turns out unbeknownst to me, one of our guests was allergic to peanuts and all peanut by products. Thanks for any insight. Shane
