Crisco IS Cooking
Crisco is a big name in American cooking and they pride themselves on helping people "cook better tasting meals for their families".
The Crisco range of ingredients is vast, including shortening, cooking oil, olive oil and cooking sprays.
Believe it or not, you can trace the history of Crisco all the way back to 1837 and the formation of Procter & Gamble, a name you are quite possibly familiar with!
The name Crisco first came about in 1911 and was essentially a shortening made entirely of vegetable oil, created to provide an alternative to animal fats and butter.
The range may have expanded, but when someone says Crisco today, it's usually the shortening they are referring to!
