Smokin! Fussels Fine Foods up their oil
Fussels have added a different flavour to their Somerset rapeseed oil by smoking it.
The Westcountry maker has taken its award-winning and hyphen-conducting Extra-Virgin Cold-Pressed Rapeseed Oil and given it treatment usually reserved for fish, meat and cheese.
The result, they say, is “a delicious oil, with a subtle smoky flavour and aroma which is perfect for roasting, frying, baking, marinating and dipping”.
Andy Fussell, owner of Fussels Fine Foods, said: “We were at a farmer’s market when we were given a piece of fabulous smoked cheese to try and then asked what we thought our oil would taste like if we smoked it.
“We had to try it and absolutely love the result – it’s fantastic rubbed on jacket potatoes or wedges, used in marinades for chicken or pulled pork and even in its simplest form, as a dip for crusty white bread!”
Fussels Smoked Rapeseed Oil is available nationwide from www.fusselsfinefoods.co.uk – RRP from £3.50 for 250ml.
