A great source of Vitamin E, almond oil has a fantastically rich, nutty flavor. A little goes a long way! Almond oil is great on green vegetables - try drizzling over blanched green beans topped with slivered almonds. Or toss steamed broccoli with almond oil and fleur de sel.
About the Producer:
Huilerie J. Leblanc's production of nut oils began in 1878 and has really changed very little as the company now rests on the shoulders of the newest Leblanc, Jean Charles. At the factory in Burgundy, pounds of nuts are ground into a paste, what is essentially nut butter, and this paste is roasted. And that's really it! This paste is allowed to settle and the oil is drained off creating a decadent nut oil with the most luxurious flavor and creamy texture. What is left is the most pronounced essence of the oils within the nut.
