As the most northerly cold pressed rapeseed oil, CULLISSE Highland Rapeseed Oil benefits from the unique micro-climate and fertile soils of Easter Ross in the Scottish Highlands where the naturally healthy properties of the rapeseed are nurtured in the seed pods during the extra long days of light that distinguish a Highland summer.
Buttery, with hints of asparagus, Cullisse is best used cold for bread dipping and dressings, but it's versatile enough to be used for roasting, baking and stir-frying. It has half the saturated fat of most olive oils and is a source of omega 3.
Taste Notes: All cold pressed rapeseed oils have differing characteristics depending on the variety of seeds pressed and the soil and climate in which they are grown. CULLISSE Highland Rapeseed Oil imparts a silky butteriness and summer grassiness with hints of asparagus, pea shoots and freshly picked garden peas. Some palates may also detect a very subtle nuttiness.
