Deep Frying Using Shortening. Do I Pre Melt? Or Pack Shortening Into Deep Fryer?

kjellj | Dec 27, 2011 12:07 PM

So I am going to do some deep drying using shortening. Do I pre melt the shortening and the pour it into the deep fryer? Or do I just pack the shortening into the deep fryer? And if I pack it into the deep fryer, do I just pack it to the fill line(Does it become more or less when it melts)?

Want to stay up to date with this post?
