Fry It Real Good: How To Make Delicious Fried Food
Use Fresh Cooking Oil
Although it can be tempting to reuse cooking oil, especially if you are frying a large batch of food, it is better not to. Using clean cooking oil will allow your food to fry better and also have a better taste. Using oil more than once can give it a lower smoking point, making it harder to cook with and worse on the taste buds. It can even make the food that you are frying even more unhealthy, as it breaks compounds down and turns them into trans fats.
Use a Good Pan
The type of pan you use to fry your food can also make a big difference in the quality and taste of your food. A good frying pan will be sturdy and heavy. Sturdy metal pans will conduct and distribute heat better than their counterparts. The way heat conducts is very important to the process of frying food.
When it comes to frying food, follow these simple tips for better results. Whether you are cooking your grandmother's fried chicken recipe, or trying to duplicate the fried Twinkie you had at the county fair, using fresh cooking oil and a large sturdy pan will increase the quality of your food and its taste.
