Depends on what you are frying Addie. Potatoes are fairly flavorless and will pick up a slight peanutty flavor. With stronger flavors, like fried chicken, I don't think you would notice.

Thanks. I think I will pick up a bottle next time I go shopping. Will let you know. Fortunately, I am not allergic to nuts of any kind. Just the two legged ones.

Peanut oil made in the USA are highly filtered and therefore pretty tasteless. Asian peanut oils have a distinct peanut aroma and taste. I use Asian peanut oil for stirfrys.

Personally, I wouldn't use breadcrumbs in chicken frying. IMHO they aren't good for long periods of frying like is necessary for chicken. I would stick with seasoned flour, or just seasoning.....

I deep fry with peanut oil and have never found it to add any flavor to what I am cooking.

Thanks. I don't do too much frying every since the gall bladder attack. And I will never touch Chinese food again.

What is wrong with Chinese food? (Other than maybe you don't like it.)

I'm not a big peanut oil user but I've never noticed any peanut taste or aroma.

Ninety-nine percent of Chinese food is fried. And more women than men who are brought to the ER for gall bladder attacks recently ate Chinese food. No thanks, don't care to go through that event again. I developed sepsis in my gall bladder and blood system. Don't have to tell me twice.
