October Giveaway — Limerock Orchards Walnut Oil
Do you love finding interesting ingredients or new to you produce? Me too! Like a brain teaser, I pick up something new and find out what I can cook with it. Is it a one trick pony or versatile, does it spark some creativity? I also like to support these special, small producers whether at farmer’s markets or online.
You might have seen this walnut oil as an ingredient in past posts. Small orchard, family dry farmed and soon to be certified organic. I discovered this richly roasted walnut oil last year and after using it in various recipes I am pretty sure you will love it too. We caught up with Olivia from Limerock Orchards at Savor the Central Coast last weekend. There, we chatted about the differences between their California dry farmed walnuts and the imports from France. Yes, like other fine foods, methods and terrior create the conditions of flavor. Walnut oil also has numerous health benefits, rich in antioxidents, copper, magesium and omega 3, 6 and 9 oils. Olivia said that they are also involved in a huge effort to certify their orchard as organic. This is one dedicated family! I couldn’t leave their booth without a couple of packages of their pocket-sized bottles paired with gourmet popping corn. One is just for you!

I’ve also used it to make a great dressing or added to pound cake for a flavor boost. The Limerock Orchard website as recipes too!
