Q: I have a question about your article on cooking oils.
Everyone always wants to know which are the best oils to use, but regarding the “stickiness” of oils, when is an oil considered NOT an oil and more of a wax???
As an example… “wool wax” (lanolin), which is not really a grease/oil, but it’s not edible, as far as I know. Lanolin is more of a wax and it works most excellently as a rust inhibitor and a vehicle chassis undercoat!!!
Lanolin is probably a bad example, but the only example I could think of in regards to how tenacious it is in even resisting Professional Dawn Dish Detergent!!!
Olive oil and coconut oil are favorites of mine. When I’ve made pancakes, I’ve always used coconut oil that has a coco-nutty taste! It gives it a full dessert type flavor!!!
I used to use canola oil, but after a while I came to the conclusion that it was best used for making bio-diesel instead of human consumption! Crisco makes excellent long burn emergency candles … just plunge a wick into the center and LIGHT UP!

I love the Crisco and lanolin comments! Thanks for the great email.
The best oils to eat are the oils from the fruits around the seeds. I select these natural oils, but not the oils from traditional seeds (like sunflower seeds).
So, choose the fruit oils, not the seed oils.
My favorite oils are from coconuts and olives. Flax seed oil and avocado oil are also good. These are the oils that do not stick in your body – you can cleanse your gall bladder using olive oil because it excretes right out of your body taking bile with it.
Stone Fruit Oils – Not Seed Oils
Let’s talk coconut oil. A coconut is a fruit — not a nut. In fact, a coconut falls under a subcategory known as drupes, which are defined as fruits that have an inner flesh and a seed that is surrounded by a hard shell.
A coconut is all of these: a seed, a fruit and a nut.
A coconut is a seed because it is the reproductive part of the tree, it is a fruit because it is a fibrous one-seeded drupe and a coconut is a nut because a nut is merely a one-seeded “fruit.”
Olives are small fruits that grow on olive trees (Olea europaea). They are also drupes, or stone fruits, and are related to mangoes, cherries, peaches, almonds, and pistachios. Olives are very high in vitamin E and other powerful antioxidants.
Here’s an article I wrote about using olive oil as a gall bladder cleanse. I did this when I was diagnosed with aspartame poisoning, and I will attest that it does work. Cleansing my gall bladder dropped my bad cholesterol over 100 points.
So, choose one seeded fruit oils. And keep some Crisco and string on hand in case your electricity goes out.
