You Don’t Need a Deep Fryer!

Once in a while, we all enjoy the aromatic crispiness and tender inside of well-fried food. However, it is absolutely imperative to reach just the right temperature for optimal results. With our recommended method, the fat will not soak or burn your food, but make it truly crunchy and delicious. First, don’t be shy with the oil—add a thumb’s width of neutral oil to the frying pan and allow to heat up for approx. 2 – 4 min. Use oil with a high smoking point, such as olive oil or other vegetable oils. Next, check the temperature by dipping the tip of a wooden cooking spoon into the oil—if small bubbles rise up around the spoon, you’re good to go!
