    I use Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Aldi. I believe it is 100% olive oil.

    I use aluminium because I support our local bauxite mines in north Qld, and also the aluminium smelter four hundred klms north of us at Gladstone.
    We use the generic home brand olive oil from Woolies, I put a splash in my omelette mix every day.

    A co-worker shared today that she has stopped using canola oil after reading some of the links I shared at the office (and in my post here). Canola oil is heavily marketed to health-conscious consumers. And I've observed over the years that some forum members here use it. That made me curious. Here's the first link that came up. I found it helpful, and hope you do too. :)

    I HATE the label vegetable oil. Honestly I rekon the government need to ban these awful hydrogenated fats. I have a bottle of vegetable oil under the sink, I now use it to wash sticky hands, (sounds weird but works) about all that stuff is good for

    The great thing about lard or dripping is that it’s cheap! I make my own ghee but on a non existent budget, it can be too expensive at times.
