Groundnut oil is one of those lesser known basics for cooking which is really worth knowing about. For one, you might be surprised to learn that it has quite similar properties to that of olive oil.

It is great as a substitute for olive oil particularly in oriental cooking as olive oil clashes with the flavours and is too strong in comparison to groundnut oil. The high smoking point means it can be heated to a very high temperature making it ideal for stir frying; but it is also great for deep and shallow frying and as it is similar but not quite as heavy as olive oil, it is great for salads and mayonnaise.
