Oil, Vinegar & Dressings

This week we celebrate a British Farming success story: Rapeseed Oil.

Rapeseed, that vibrant yellow flowered crop you see in some many fields at this time of year, is a member of the brassica family (caulis, broccoli etc). The oils have been developed and refined over the last 15 years or so and are now very well recognised and respected.

Why choose rapeseed oil?

Well, it has the lowest saturated fat content of any vegetable oil,  just 6% compared with 14% in olive oil and 51% in butter, and is rich in Omega 3 – which is good for blood circulation and young brains – and contains Omega 6 and 9.

Its flavour is mildly nutty & earthy, rather than fruity (like olive oil) and is very versatile: it can be used in stir fries, roasting or salad dressing or to replace butter in a flapjack, bread and cakes.”

Finally of course, you know it is British, meaning low food miles and you know where it has come from - in our case, the Fairs Family of Hillfarm, Halesworth, Suffolk.
