Palm Oil is new to me but it’s definitely not new. According to Wikipedia, it’s been used as far back as the late–1800s. I’ve heard of it before but never really gave it another thought, that is until recently. It wasn’t until I started seeing more and more review of it that it finally caught my undivided attention. And, because I love trying new things that I’ve never tried before, I decided to give this oil a test run. This oil turns to liquid form when I’m using it around my oven but when it’s stored in my cupboard, it’s more of a solid form. It comes in an easy to squeeze bottle so either way comes out the same, which is easy and quick.
I’m not a big fryer but there are some things I love fried. Like eggplants, sweet potatoes, french fries and of course chicken. And then there are my favorite foods that use oil in to cook like sauces, roasted potatoes and veggies, and popcorn. I decided to try the oil both ways to get a feel for how it does in a small or larger amount. This oil is able to withstand high heating temperatures so I found it great to use both ways.
With my trusty apron on a bottle of Carotino Malaysian Red Palm Oil in one hand and popcorn in the other, I set out to see what this oil could do. I pushed my air popper aside and took out a heavy duty pan with a top because homemade popcorn is always the best. Yes, I could have used the oil in my air popper, but it all came down to wanting to pop my own. I wanted to shake my pan and watch the kernels puff up. I’ve always had a fascination with popping corn.
And then I decided it was time to try french fries. There’s nothing better on a rainy day like today than a nice piping hot french fry sandwich. You have to try one before you knock them. Add ketchup or mustard and you’re in for a treat. I guess mayo would be a good pairing too but I don’t eat it myself. The oil did not burn even when using high heat which I use to fry. The french fries turned out crispy and delicious.
You can buy this brand of Palm Oil just about anywhere but go to the website to learn more about it and where to find it. I recently found some at our local Dollar General.
This oil works as well as any other oils I’ve tried, maybe even better with high heat. You’re probably asking yourself why you should buy it over other oil brands. I hope the following information will help you make the right decision the next time you buy oil for your cooking.
