On this one:
at about 15:30 in the recording, the buyers visited a farm growing rapeseed for the oil.
When we've visited Europe, we've enjoyed beautiful fields of the yellow flowers. What I did not know (until watching that video) was that the oil was not considered to be human consumable until Canadian researchers created a variety in the 1970s that was lower acid and therefore acceptable to human consumption - called Canola for CANadian Oil Low Acid. Did you know that???
Note: in internet research, I have found that most places say that Canola just means "Canadian Oil" (nothing to do with "low acid").
Note 2: We have begun purchasing expeller-pressed Canola oil to use for our "oil and spices" bread - we like putting oil in a dish and then adding spices to it, and then dipping the bread into the oil and spices. The Canola oil has a lighter flavor than the olive oils that we had been using.
|We also like the Kroger organic brand - Simple Truth Organic Expeller Pressed Canola Oil|
