Nash’s is producing a local and sustainable cooking oil. It is 100% organic camelina, unrefined, and grown and cold-pressed right in Dungeness!
Camelina seed (aka wild flax, German sesame, or Siberian oilseed) is a plant from the Cruciferae family, domesticated and used in Europe for several thousand years. The seeds are high in Omega-3 fatty acids, anti-inflammatory fats considered beneficial for cardiovascular health. They are up to 45% Omega-3s, similar to the amount found in flax seed, and have additional plant chemicals that are anti-oxidants, including vitamin E.
You can use the oil for cooking (smoke point is 475F) so you can add a delicious nutty flavor to your vegetable sautés!
