sauteeing
1. california rice bran oil
2. grapeseed oil
3. pecan oil (kinloch plantations, a local louisiana product but $$$)

evoo
1. frantoia (almond & buttery finish)
2. zoe (Spanish, great peppery finish)
3. columela (great oil but $$$)

butter
1. Smith creamery (local louisiana dairy)
2. Amish Gourmet (ordered from Minerva Cheese)

FYI - when making clarified butter, I use the Smith Creamery Unsalted version (not sold in stores); this butter is virtually water free.

Hi Nicklord,

If I remember correctly, recent scientific work, being conducted in Europe, reported on the UK, TV channel, ITV1 on their programme, "This Morning" (Google if interested) reported that for the best mix of tomatoes and oil, one should use EVOO/OO and processed tomatoes. Also, IIRC, the lycopene - a component derived from tomatoes (so called anti cancer) are best from purée, passatta and canned tomatoes. Check the web site for more specific information.

Hope this helps,
Archiduc

I've found that deep frying in peanut oil is too rich for my family. Is there another alternative???

i've had GREAT results with rice bran oil.

high smoke point plus it doesn't "penetrate" as much as other oils.
