Deep Frying Tip -- How to Test if the Oil is Hot Enough

When frying food the oil should be sufficiently heated before beginning frying. This is to avoid a greasy texture and taste.

The reasoning behind this is when the hot oil makes contact with whatever is frying, it will quickly seal-in the juices, (on meats, for example), and seal-out the oil in which the food is frying.

One way to determine if the oil is hot enough to begin frying is to introduce a small sample of the food you are cooking. When the hot oil begins to bubble rapidly around the test sample is how to determine when it is ready.
