    Info Oils and Vinegars

    Uses for frying, brushing, basting, marinades, and dressings, oils are made from vegetables, fruit, nuts, or seeds and are healthier than animal fats.
    *Sunflower Oil -- verly light and neutral, virtually tasteless.. general-purpose that can be used for all cooking purposes
    Olive Oil -- mildly fruity, but brands vary...Mediterranean dishes, marinades, broiling, barbecuing, and sauteing
    **Extra-Virgin Olive Oil -- peppery, fruity...for dressing salads and cold dishes, and sprinkling over hot foods just before serving

    Bottled vinegars are a good buy, buy don't display them on the kitchen windowsill or they will quickly lose their flavor.
    Wine Vinegar -- red and white are mildly dressings, sauces, and marinades
    Cider Vinegar -- strong, like an acidic hard wine vinegar, but has a stronger taste, so use less

    *The oil mentioned above is the more expensive variety. The 'ordinary, all-purpose' vegetable oil is perfectly acceptable. However, if you don't want anything to interfere with the taste of your meats and veggies, you'll want to catch sunflower oil on sale. Use it for the really special meals and you'll be surprised at the difference!
    **Try dipping toasted Italian or French bread slices in!
