Testing if oil is hot enough

jfood | | Jan 17, 2009 05:42 AM

Jfood is canning some marinara and the food channel in the background. The chef on Viva Daisy (whatever) was making something and jfood glanced over as she stated, "a good way to test if the oil is hot enough to fry is to stick the end of a wooden spoon in the oil." And then she placed the non-stirring end in the oil and it did show the bubbles come up the handle a little.

Has anyone tried this?
