Squash seeds are an often overlooked source of nutrition and flavor. High in protein and flavor, they contain vitamins E and A and beneficial carotenoids like lutein and zeaxanthin. When carefully roasted and pressed for their oils the result is a savory, nutty flavored culinary oil that complements a variety of foods from salads to soups to marinades.
Stony Brook works directly with New York farmers to source seeds directly following the fall harvest. With a commitment to local sourcing they aim to support local production and promote environmental and economic health in the Finger Lakes region. Over a decade after they started, Stony Brook Wholeheartedfoods is still the only company in the U.S. producing culinary oil from vegetable seed waste, and one of the only regional producers of culinary oils using 100% USA grown seeds.
The other reviewers did not exaggerate--this is an amazing product! It is so so good. A few years ago I lost most of my sense of taste and smell due to a virus, but I can actually smell this! I've tried it on salads and bread, and have been experimenting with it on roasted veggies. It's expensive but worth it.
I bought this oil looking for a local alternative to olive oil. It's ridiculously delicious. I ate it all with bread before I could even cook with it. I wish Farmers To You offered larger sizes for better value, as well as their sunflower oil.
Every time I open the bottle I have all I can do not to guzzle this down, it smells sooo delicious!...this is my new "go to" cooking oil....can't miss with this one!
One sniff of this lovely oil will make you never want another oil. It's flavorful and has a woodsy butternut aroma and to top it off, it's a healthy oil. Give it a try!
This oil smells so good. Rich and nutty! I try some over some roasted Brussel sprouts and it was so delicious. This might become my new favorite oil as it is a very healthy as well :)
