Cullisse Highland Rapeseed Oil 500ml

Category: Oil & Vinegars
Content Volume: 500ml

Robert Mackenzie is the most northerly producer of rapeseed oil in the UK using oilseed rape grown by his father and brother in Ross-shire. He was featured using Cullisse Highland rapeseed oil on Nigel Slater’s “Simple Christmas” for the BBC in December 2011.

Cullisse is a cold-pressed rapeseed oil rich in Omegas 3, 6 and 9 and a natural source of vitamin E.  It has almost half the saturated fat of olive oil and is high in cholesterol-busting mono and polyunsaturates.  With a high flash point it can be used for cooking at high temperatures without losing its ant-oxidant health benefits.  But Cullisse is not just for cooking:  deep amber in colour and with a subtle nutty taste offset with a hint of fresh pea-pod, it is also great drizzled directly over meat, seafood and vegetables, or blended into a vinaigrette for a perfect salad dressing.  The attractive packaging is reminiscent of a bottle of malt scotch, making it a great gift for foodie friends looking for that something a little bit different.
