Great ingredients make for great meals. Whenever you can, use the highest quality supplies for your recipes. The flavor difference will always come through in your finished dish.
If there is an ingredient that you are not familiar with, check our Ingredient section. There are pages and pages of information about the ingredients used in my recipes.
Canola oil is the oil pressed from rape seeds. Pure rape seed oil contains toxins and canola oil is a processed version that has had the toxins removed.
There are so many good things about this oil. Like olive oil, it is very high in monounsaturated fat and very low in saturated fat. The polyunsaturated fats are mostly Omega-3 type.
Canola oil is a staple in my kitchen and should be in yours. I use it when I want an oil that won't add flavor to a recipe and for this reason I love to use it in baking.
