Our handcrafted, Roasted Walnut Oil is made in California following 150 year-old traditional French methods. Made from English Walnuts which are slowly roasted to perfection, expeller-pressed and lightly filtered, this Roasted Walnut Oil is flavorful and an excellent source of Omega 3 and natural anti-oxidants.
Walnut Oil is an ingredient that is sometimes hard to find, but its delicate nutty flavor and scent, and its versatility in the kitchen make it an excellent resource for your cooking oil collection.
Interestingly, walnut oil was an important tool in the Renaissance painter's kit. Its quickness of drying and lack of yellow tint make it a good oil paint thinner and brush cleaner. Even today, some woodworkers prefer walnut oil to other alternatives to finishes for wooden cutting boards or salad bowls. If you use walnut oil to make your own oil-wax finish, the proportion to use is 1/3 walnut oil to 2/3 beeswax.
Roasted Walnut Oil is a great complement to winter salads, to your simple pastas with grated cheese, and is delicious as a drizzle over steamed or grilled vegetables. Use Roasted Walnut Oil as part of your shortening in pumpkin or banana bread, or in applesauce cake! Walnut oil is a fantastic dipping oil. Avoid using Roasted Walnut Oil for frying or high-heat applications.
Try Roasted Walnut Oil in a marinade for grilled meats and seafood, or in your next vinaigrette. Pairs deliciously with Cinnamon Pear Balsamic vinegar.
