Thread: Where's the peanut oil?

  1. #1
    Felice Guest

    Default Where's the peanut oil?

    Do you people know something I don't know?

    There was no peanut oil anywhere in Shaw's today, but the shelves were full
    of olive, corn, vegetable, safflower and you-name-it. The manager was
    nowhere to be found and the clerks didn't know anything about it.

    The Planter's site is all about nuts, but nowhere does it mention oil.

    I've always used peanut oil and olive oil, and liked the peanut because it
    is, well, innocuous. So if there's a shortage I haven't heard about, or if
    it's suddenly been declared toxic, what do I do know?

    You can always find it at CostCo/Sam's, Home Depot, Lowe's, and most
    sporting goods stores. I rarely see containers smaller than a
    gallon at the grocery stores.

    It has been is short supply for some time. I've noticed some stores don't
    even bother to keep it stocked, anymore, and the prices have shot up. It's
    the gasoline of cooking oils. Try an asian market if you have any around.
    You can still get good stuff there.

    I saw peanut oil (don't recall the brand) at a local 99 Ranch (norcal)
    Asian food market. It was around $16.00/gallon. Too rich for my tastes
    even though I prefer it over other oils for frying.

    Try your local Asian market, if you have one. You'll find it there.

    The only reason I don't use it is that I occasionally cook for a friend
    who is allergic to peanuts, and I don't want to make her sick by
    accidentally using the wrong kind of oil.

    Careful to read the smaller print on the box though. I have never found
    anything except blended oil at the big box stores. The only place I have
    found 100% peanut is at a local foodservice place.

    Around here, (Idaho) you don't find large containers of peanut oil until
    Thanksgiving when everyone is about to deep fry a turkey. I can find it at
    a restaurant supply store most of the time. The conainer is maybe 2 1/2
    gallons for $25-28. I stocked up last year. Corn oil went from $14 gallon
    to $26 in about 2 weeks. Fortunately I had just bought a gallon -- my
    year's supply. Throughout the midwest and south, farmers can't get crops in
    because of the excessive rain. Plan on really expensive food items next
    year.

    I have no problem finding almost any type of oil in quart or litre
    containers at the supermarket, which includes canola, peanut, and corn oil,
    among others. Of coursed, there are blended oils. I doh't buy themn, so I
    don't know what the blend is.
