Oil for Hanukkah Latkes

I’ve always preferred grapeseed oil for frying Hanukkah latkes, in part because it has a high smoke point (485 degrees) and is a light, neutral oil. Salut Santé — a Napa, Calif., company that has been producing grapeseed oils for more than 20 years — has added a new feature to its basic version: It’s now cold pressed, the better to retain properties like antioxidants. It is also kosher: Cold-pressed grapeseed oil, 1 liter (33.8 ounces), $14.95; half-liter (16.9 ounces), $9.95; five liters (169 ounces), $55; Salut Santé, 707-251-3900, grapeseedoil.com.
