Focus On: Oleic-Acid - Omega 9: Unlike the 3’s and 6’s, Omega-9 fats are not “essential” fatty acids. That means that you don’t need to get them in your diet – if your body needs them, it can make its own. Oleic acid, one of the component of Omega 9, is a monounsaturated fat found in olive oil and hazelnut oil. It’s been studied as the fat behind the unique health benefits of those oils.
La Tourangelle is the first oil mill in California to produce pistachio oil using traditional French methods. After harvesting, the nuts are washed, sorted, sun-dried for several days and stored for further drying. The pistachio kernels are then ground and roasted in cast-iron kettles. The resulting warm paste is pressed in a hydraulic press. Following mechanical extraction, the oil is lightly filtered and bottled. The oil has intense pistachio flavors and a luxurious, dark green color.
Roasted Pistachio Oil/Balsamic vinaigrette: 6 tbsp pistachio oil, 1.5 tbsp balsamic vinegar, 1 tbsp dijon mustard, salt & pepper to taste. Stir the mustard into the vinegar. Whisk pistachio oil well until the dressing is smooth. Salt & pepper.
