Butternut squash seed oil has a buttery, nutty, toasted flavor
and a golden color. It makes a delicious finishing oil, cooking oil,
marinade ingredient or salad dressing component. It can also be used as
an ingredient in baked goods. Butternut squash seed oil is
high in healthy mono & polyunsaturated fats, vitamin A and vitamin
E. It has a fairly similar saturated fat content to peanut oil –
roughly a third as much as butter.
Butternut seed oil has a high smoke point (425˚F), so it can be used
as a cooking oil for high-heat cooking methods like stir frying,
sautéing & grilling.
The seeds used in the production of this oil are collected from
non-GMO squash pre-cleaned & cut for sale in grocery stores. Before
being pressed for their oil, the seeds are carefully roasted in small
batches to bring out their full flavor. Because squash seeds yield such
a small amount of oil (20% of their weight), each bottle contains the
seeds of 10 or more squash.
This oil is produced using a zero waste process. The remaining
seedcake from the expeller is actually used in premium pig feed, while
the filtration byproducts are turned into exfoliants in handmade bar
Itâ€™s delicious mixed into mashed potatoes, polenta and vegetable purees instead of butter or drizzled over hot soup just before serving.
Butternut squash seed oil's flavor pairs particularly well with meats (especially grilled), fish, sea scallops, corn, multigrain bread, green beans, Brussels sprouts, spinach, squash, cauliflower, avocado, papaya, or mango. How to Make a Vinaigrette Oil Recipes & Techniques
