Olive, coconut, and sesame. I use the olive for most things, the coconut for baking or things where I want no flavor, and the sesame just as a finishing oil for Asian dishes.

It really depends on the type of lard. I grew up with Manteca. It is dry rendered and sold primarily in Mexican stores. It is brown in color and smells like bacon. No refrigeration needed. It can't get any worse because it is already rancid. My mom kept it on the counter and just added more when she needed to. Now if you are buying wet rendered lard, the kind that is white with almost no odor, then it needs refrigeration. These lards are also taken from different parts of the pig.

Weight is the result of what you have been doing for the past week.

EVOO and canola oil.

Lard would not be in the Mexican section. It has to be refrigerated or frozen or it will spoil. Look for it near the margarine or perhaps the meat case by the cuts of pork.

Extra virgin olive oil.
Pure olive oil (for cooking at temperature).
Sesame oil (used more as a "spice/flavouring" than as an oil)
Canola oil (rarely used).

I cook only with olive oil the majority of the time. A couple times a year I make something with an Asian flair, and i'll use a small bit of sesame oil.

2 Timothy 1:7
For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline.

Philippians 4:6-7
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

I have a fairly cheap EVOO, a very expensive high quality EVOO (plain), three different flavored olive oils (Harissa, Tuscan Herb, and Sage & Mushroom from Outrageous Olive Oils--they are HANDS DOWN the best flavored oils), avocado oil, canola oil, corn oil, chile oil, sesame oil, black truffle oil, and a couple of oil cooking sprays.
Don't even get me started about the 100+ hot sauces...

EVOO for dressings and similar that need quality olive.

Light olive for most cooking.

Canola for things I'll cook at a very high heat.

Sesame for stirfry.

Peanut for random cooking.

General vegetable for certain recipes but have had that bottle a while and should probably replace it soon.

I just found a bottle of flaxseed oil. I have no idea where that came from or why I bought it.

yummy.... I've gotta get out to our "local" butcher and see if they have some locally raised pork. Pork belly! mmm

I wonder how it would be to toss some sweet potato "fries" in renderings and roast them...... with cinnamon and Himalayan salt, maybe!

Coconut, olive (regular), EVOO, and sometimes some "exotic" oils (walnut, avocado, etc). A small bottle of sesame oil for stir-fries. I think there may be a small portion of peanut oil down there somewhere.... but I don't use peanut stuff anymore. I suppose I ought to just toss it, if I can excavate it.

JERF -- I am sooooo jealous! I need some of that pastured piggy stuff!!! LOL

I buy my lard at a local farm, I also buy my ground pork and bacon there. I like that they pasture their pork. Which means the pigs are allowed to forage outside, they are not kept in small pens.

I actually keep it in the freezer as I don't use it everyday.

As cooking oils: Canola, extra virgin olive, sesame, and cooking spray.

As other edible things: My fake creamer is mostly soy oil, all the salad dressings I have are mostly oil, my "butter" spread is made of a mix of oils, I use natural peanut butter which separates at room temperature, and I have a can of salmon packed in oil.

I also keep mineral oil for conditioning my wood cutting board, and castor oil in the bathroom for...well, you know what for.

That's all I can think of off the top of my head.

I've got walnut oil in the refrigerator (it's half gone so we're using it!) and toasted sesame oil in the fridge (for seasoning stir fries). I love canola and olive oil but we use them so much that I don't refrigerate them. I mix olive oil with butter and olive oil with peanut butter.
