Canola Oil

Not sure if this is where I want this, but this is where its going.

How long do you possibly think you'd have to keep a jug of oil before it went rank?

I went to make muffins the other day and they smelt odd but didnt think anything of it till I tasted the batter! The oil was awful! I buy 3L jugs of oil and have NEVER had one go bad on me yet. My BIL had a jug which I used and it was rank. So Im just curious...how long do you think he must have had that jug for?

The shelf life of canola oil when stored at room temperature is roughly one year. The shelf life of other vegetable oils stored at room temperature is similar. Store canola and all vegetable oils in a cool dark place for maximum shelf life.

If you know your oil is somewhat old, always smell and/or taste it before using it. If it's bad, you'll know!

Olive oil seems to age faster than others. I don't buy a huge supply of that.

I have a bottle of peanut oil that is "several" years old. It looks and smells fine. I have no problem pitching it, but I'm curious about what y'all think.....is it still good?

I'm too chicken to taste or cook with it.

If you are chicken to use or test it, I would pitch it out. Oil isn't that horribly expensive.
