    is oleo considered margarine?

    Just thought of this, when posted my recipe. I have always considered the two the same thing, but could it mean anything else?

    i don't think so - i have heard both referred to as oleomargarine (especially in old recipes) so I am pretty sure they're the same thing - i could be wrong though so i look forward to seeing any info anyone else has...

    Yes. Oleo and margarine come from the original word: oleomargarine. All of my grandma's recipes refer to oleo. In my grandmother's day the coined favorite was "oleo" but eventually the prefix was dropped and margarine favor. Did you know that when oleomargarine was first introduced to the public it was white and came with a yellow coloring packet. You had to break the packet & mix it into the oleo so that it would look like butter. My dad always hated margarine because of the early mixture he remembered as a child.
