You can have any kind of oil now; grapeseed, walnut, truffle, avocado - it seems like the list goes on and on and it only circles back to start over again, but what do you you cook with? Depending on what you are trying to do oils can enhance that situation. Chips. we made chips and we used canola oil then corn oil and found vegetable oil to be the cleanest heat resistant oil to go with. ( I have used peanut oil before but too many have allergies and even though peanut oil can heat the highest it has a bad rap)

Isnt rap like your criminal record and rep like your street cred?

Yucca chips

peel, slice, soak and fry.

Voila, chips.

Seasoned with your choice:

drizzle with your favorite flavored oil

sea salt or kosher salt

various vinegars

any seasoned salt available or any of
those powdered packaged flavors
for tacos or salad
ranch or buffalo -for example.

parmesean or any other dry grateable cheese.

nutritional yeast or brewers yeast

invent your own.

What do I cook with????!!!!
I order out, Bwahahahaha!

Christo Gonzales said...

no problem there...only wish is that I were near by so youj could order these sweet boys.

Little Wing said...

Those pictures look like what we call sweet potatoes and yams.
One has a yellow inside, one is orange, and I love them both, baked or mashed.
I actually am a pretty good cook!

What is the wrong oil to fry with, olive oil etc?

Christo Gonzales said...

LW: half right...the small one is an orange centered yam or sweet potato the other is a yucca with a white center.

LC: olive oil would be ok it just cant handle super high heat...I guess there really isnt a 'wrong'oil

Angel said...

That looked really cool! Home made has got to kick butt over the store bought ones I had once... Oils? I use about three different olive oils, peanut oil, canola, and vegetable oil depending on the dish..

Christo Gonzales said...

Beth: just let me know

ChelsPJ: crunchy, thick and tasty.

Gina: how bout when we go to where you are I will cook for you then too...we like getting out of the city.

Buffalo: a good oil selection is important almost nearly as important as good knives.
