The Really Healthy Oils in the Kitchen by Clara M. Czegeny - The Hot Hungarian Chef
The Really Healthy Oils in the Kitchen...
Hi folks. Back again with some up to the minute news about health and cooking and ingredients.
I do a lot of research and reading on and off line, so naturally, I come across some good-bad-ugly stuff. I share the good stuff!
Most recently, I came across some very wrong information. Actually - it delves into the off-base weird stuff that someone posted on
Facebook and their blog about Healthy Oils in the Kitchen. Wonder what they were
"cooking up"?It certainly wasn't health!
Let's be honest, As Hungarians, we often get a beating for using so much sour cream, butter and bacon in our recipes. So, since health is always at the top of my priority list when preparing food and recipes, I thought this would be a great opportunity to redeem our coveted Hungarian heritage recipes and put those bad reports to bed.
Ok - the recycling bin!
Here's some great comforting news. I bumped into a gal in the know called the Kitchen Kopon Facebook and she had some pretty good news to share which fits quite nicely into my research.
I won't re-write the article, because it's great as is.
"Get Rid of the Bad Fats in Your Kitchen!"
BAD GUYS: Sunflower, Safflower, Corn, Soybean, Canola, Cottonseed.
GOOD GUYS: Butter, bacon grease, animal fats, ghee, evoo, cocoanut oil, lard, tallow and palm oil!
Yeah! - we win! Us Hunkies didn't have it all wrong after all!
