There are many kinds of oils today, such as corn oil, peanut oil, sunflower oil, olive oil etc. But how about the lard? Do you use it to cook? In the past it might be much more common for us to use lard to cook, but not today. As people get used to use the peanut oil or corn oil much more. I heard that actually there are many benefits to use the lard. Tonight I tried to make it and it was quite easy. That's cool I can get another kind of oil to cook.

When I was a kid, my mom used lard to cook with but, if I use any oil at all, I prefer olive oil.

Usually I will use the olive oil to make a pizza or garlic bread.

My grandmother used lard to cook and it was an healthy alternative to butter. I do not use because my husband does not want pork.

Perhaps today you use olive oil much more.

@youless Most Italians have always used olive oil more than butter. My mother (and her mother) were from an Italian region where butter and pork are more used than in other Italian regions.

I have never used peanut oil. Guess it’s very aromatic?

Actually peanut oil is quite popular here and it is also much more expensive than other vegetable oil like corn oil and sunflower oil. It is just less expensive than the olive oil.

Lard is good. I use tallow in all my cooking an frying. I get beef fat from the butcher's and make tallow from beef fat drippings. I never use polyunsaturated cooking oils ( vegetable oil, sunflower, canola, cotton seed oil, soy beans oil, rice bran oil...). The Greatest American Lies - The Oiling of America and Heart Disease

Beef fat is nice because the dishes will smell great.

I am sure it is still in stores here, but I honestly don't know anyone that uses it. These days most people use vegetable or olive oil.

You are right. Today the vegetable oils are much more common.

@porwest I use canola oil or butter, but Dale does use Crisco (the all vegetable one) for frying fish.

We will never use lard here because anything containing pork should not be consumed by Muslim. Mostly using palm oil or coconut oil here...

I'm pretty sure lard is very unhealthy. My grandmother years ago made the best biscuits with lard, but I've always used canola oil.

Canola oil is not as common as other vegetable oil. Today it seems the tea seeds oil is supposed to be very healthy. I am not sure about it anyway.

Butter, lard and bacon grease are far superior to all those liquid oils. I use them when I have them but I don't use a lot or often.

I use olive oil or corn oil. Lard may be too fatty.

We tend to think that the lard is too fatty and unhealthy. But today if you search some information and probably you will change your mind
