Need answer fast!
(God I love doing need-answer fast cooking questions ;))
As soon as the dishwasher gets done, I will set about trying to improve a dish that I have been cooking with olive oil by smoothing out the taste a bit by using some corn oil. It might have an added benefit in having a higher smoke point than olive oil, as I want to cook the onions and green peppers at high heat for a couple minutes and this might get the oil hotter. (Then again I don’t mind a little smoke as it seems to add to the flavor a bit if I keep it covered.)
So, if I mix olive oil and corn oil will it create a mixture, where the smoke point is between the two, or will the olive oil smoke separately at its normal temperature?
