Do you still deep fry, and if so - what region are you from?
Wondering if anyone still deep fries in this supposed age of diet and health awareness. Also wondering if the regions that do are also the regions most associated with obesity.
I still have a deep fryer way in the back of my kitchen cabinets but have not used it in probably eight years now.
No I don't deep fry as a general rule and I prefer not to fry at all as greasy food sits heavy in my stomach. We live in Greece.
once or twice a year we will deep fry - usually zucchini squash in the summer in a beer batter as a treat. As a general rule though we do not deep fry. We are from the midwest US where waaaay too many people do like deep fried foods lol
I don't deep fry anything. Haven't for years. We I do fry, it is in a tad of olive oil, just enough so things don't stick. We live in NH.
I think your questioning the regional obesity problem is a valid one. While we eat healthy in our house, our neighbor is morbidly obese. I think it tends to be a chosen lifestyle. I am interested in following this question.
Guilty as charged. I suspect your hypothesis is correct. I deep fry fish or potatoes four or five times a year. I switched to oil from Crisco decades ago. I've never cooked with lard except back in the eighties when I worked in a diner. I live in the Deep South (Georgia) in a county with a 27% obesity rate. At least I started roasting chicken.
Yes I do still deep fry. Some of the best tasting recipes come from deep frying. I'm in North Eastern U.S., Vermont.
I am from Mexico and I never deep fry, besides being unhealthy, I don’t like the smell of the oil stinking the whole surrounding.
I live in Texas (is there anywhere else to live) ha..ha..I loved fried food but I actually only deep fry 3 to 4 times per year, that's when I have a fish fry for my family and some fried oysters occasionally, or a Fried turkey which absorbs virtually not oil. I have tested this and it's true.
I do sometimes, but not a lot. I'm from Pennsylvania. Mostly fish and chips or breakfast potatos, so obviously not regional foods! I am discouraged from doing so by my wife for reasons of health and fire safety.
Yes I do deep fry. What difference does it make where I come from?
sure do,.... cause deep fried tastes good,..... i'm about 20 pounds heavier than experts think i should be,... i remember being skinnier than this,.... i dont care,...
when i die i plan on being cremated,.... its on of my greatest wishes that my artieries might burn for an adtionl 4 hours after the rest of me is gone.
i have never seen a head stone that read,... "sure glad i laid off the fried foods"
i'm not morbidly fat,... i have a healty insurance policy against illness.
so there! ha!
We are healthy eaters as a rule but I can't go without deep fried chicken, so we have that maybe once a month.
Even though I grew up in the south, I don't deep fry and never have. I don't consider it healthy and I don't like greasy food.
I've never deep-fried anything. My mother didn't even deep-fry stuff (although once she made some doughnuts.
I'm from New England, which is pretty much the opposite of the South.
Looking around at some of the heavier people I've known, I tend to blame the non-stop drinking of calorie-loaded lattes (and similar drinks), people being so busy and tired they head for the easiest food, and too little exercise.
yes,I deep fry many things potatoes, fish, cauliflower. They are tasty and if you are taking good care of your health by exercising and eating healthy things mostly, I do not think that occasional fried foods will be bad.
I've never deep-fried, and I don't even skillet- or stir-fry much any more, but when I do, it sure is good! (I grew up on the Texas-Louisiana border and live in health-conscious Austin now.)
I know that healthy and fried don’t usually cohabitate in the same sentence. One is evil and lives on the other side of the railroad tracks while the second one is welcome in our homes but there is a way to have fried foods without the guilt. read more
I was born in California and moved to Pennsylvania when I was 10, and I deep fry from time-to-time . . . if you deep fry with the oil at the proper temperature the food absorbs far less oil than if you pan fry with just a small amount of oil. Diet and health "awareness" is not always the same thing as diet and health knowledge . . . since I was a kid, and I'm 57 now, I can't recall how many times milk was good for you, then not good for you, than it was good for you again, then you should drink a glass a day, than you should never ever drink a glass a day, etc, etc. Wine is no good, wine is good - red meat is good, red meat is no good, red meat is good again . . . rather than follow the ever-changing 'science' of nutrition I follow this; everything in moderation.

I say yes. Using an oil which holds up under high temperatures the oil does not break down and change its molecular structure. It is still recognizable to the human body which can break it down and utilize it.

If you had to go without one, would you choose chocolate or fried foods?

Does a dog food brand help the dog's diet and health?There are so many brands in the market to choose from, and choosing the wrong brand may cause problems to the skin, etc., for dog lovers, what are your thoughts on this?

What foods would you like to see deep fried?I ask because the Texas State Fair is almost here and they published the list of foods they are plunging into the deep fryer. The weirdest flavor will be bubblegum. It is not actually bubble gum but some kind of flavored marshmallow or...

How about a donut pizza? A large round donut topped with icing and sprinkles and whatnot in a pizza like way?
