Yorkshire Rapeseed Oil
Adam and Jennie Palmer and team at Yorkshire Rapeseed Oil produce wonderful oils, dressings and mayonnaise all made using their own award-winning, cold-pressed rapeseed oil.
The brand began life in 2008 with just one product in the range. The business has grown and now they offer more than 20 products including limited-edition flavours: the basil variety is great brushed on toasted ciabatta and topped with freshly chopped tomatoes and garlic!
All of their oil is made from home-grown rapeseed, harvested and carefully cold pressed on the family farm in Thixendale in the Yorkshire Wolds. The oils, dressings and mayonnaise are blended by hand, bottled and labelled on the farm using farm-kitchen developed recipes.
The oil has a gentle nutty flavour and with its high burn point is ideal for frying, baking, drizzling and dipping. In addition, it contains only half the saturated fat of olive oil, and is GM free.
You can buy Yorkshire Rapeseed Oil products and gift hampers directly from their website as well as from many of Yorkshire’s independent farm shops, delis and retailers, and at food festivals and farmers markets in the area.
