Peanut Oil for Turkey Fryer

Along with a great taste, peanut oil is perfect for deep-frying because it has a unique property: It does not absorb the flavor of other foods cooked in the oil. You can cook several different items together and each will maintain their own great taste. Peanut oil can reach a high temperature that keeps the outside of food crispy and the inside very moist. Peanut oil works well with all types of deep fried turkey recipes.
