THERE’S MORE THAN ONE WAY TO FRY A FOOD

Before you jump into the deep end of the frying pan, check out our breakdown of how to fry what—and with what.

STAY FRESH

For long-lasting freshness, store Crisco® oil or shortening in a cool, dry place away from strong odors, direct sunlight, and sources of heat.

GO HALFSIES

If you love the benefits of shortening, but want the flavor of butter, use half butter and half shortening in your baking recipes!

STICK-FREE MEASURING

Coating your measuring tools with no-stick spray will make cleanup of sticky substances such as honey, mustards, or syrups easy.
