Before receiving a sample of [amazon_link id=”B00C20R608″ target=”_blank” ]Stoger Organic Seed Oil, Pumpkin[/amazon_link], I had never even considered pumpkin seed oil. I love pumpkin seeds! It’s one of the bonuses of making pumpkin pies from garden grown pumpkins. Of course, pumpkin seed oil is amazing!
Produced at the Stöger family farm in Neuruppersdorf, Austria where only the finest Styrian Pumpkin Seeds are harvested. Sorted by size and color to ensure an intense and nutty flavor, the seeds are then slowly roasted at a low temperature to produce an oil with superior quality and depth of flavor with hints of smokey caramel.
Known as “Green Gold” this dark green gourmet oil is delicious in dressings, over potatoes of any kind and terrific when drizzled over vanilla ice cream! Try adding some salt and pepper and dunking bread in it or drizzle it into an avocado. This healthy oil is can be used on anything in lieu of butter. The more you have it, the more you crave it!
smoke point is 230 degrees
There is so much more to food than we are exposed to in the standard American diet. Stöger not only offers organic pumpkin seed oil, but they also make cherry seed, chile seed, and tomato seed oils. That is quite unique and not something I am used to seeing in the health food store.
I encourage you to dive deeper and explore all the different variants of Stöger oils. There is so much more for our palettes to taste! Besides, I am slightly obsessed with Austria and hope to one day hike there.
