Have a vintage recipe that calls for oleo and are confused on what it is? Well, let me tell you. You either have it in your refrigerator or you have my favorite substitute.
What is Oleo?
Oleo is short for oleomargarine. Which, as you can guess by the name is a whipped oil used as a butter substitute.
Alternative names: marge, oleo, and oleomargarine.
My suggestion: Just use butter. Always.
I find that any form of margarine ruins a good recipe. And, in my own opinion, butter gives every recipe a better flavor and is better for you. Do your own research on that and come to your own conclusion.
Happy cooking! 💋
