This olive-like oil comes from Stony Brook WholeHeartedFoods, a food producer and Good Food award winner in update New York that we highlight in many of our treats.
As they say about this oil:
A flavorful, healthy and local alternative to European olive oil adding unique flavor to everything from roasted vegetables to pasta salad to oatmeal. Our company’s first oil, butternut squash seed oil (BSSO) debuted in the fall of 2008. With the help of food scientists at Cornell University, we discovered a delicious, all-natural oil locked up in squash seed that would otherwise be destined for compost. This oil is released by precise roasting and expeller pressing without the use of chemicals, excessive heat or harsh filtration. This gently processed oil contains no hydrogenated fats, chemical additives, or preservatives.
