Tips for the Best Cold Pressed Christmas

Why add more of the bad fats when you can add more of the good. Using a beautiful British oil this Christmas is a great way to start making the switch from cheap conventional cooking oils or the food fad alternative that is coconut oil, which has recently been said to contain high levels of saturated fat. Cold Pressed Rapeseed Oil is the healthy alternative this Christmas. Naturally high in vitamin E and a perfect balance of Omega 3 and 6, Cold Pressed Rapeseed Oil is a great way to boosting your essential fatty acid intake. Forget the goose fat, and try rapeseed oil on your roast potatoes for a classic golden crunch. Roast with coarse sea salt and rosemary and you have the perfect accompaniment which certainly won’t last long at the dinner table.

It’s not just roasted potatoes and vegetables that are worthy of British Cold Pressed Rapeseed oil. Try adding to festive bakes, traditional Christmas cakes and even Christmas pudding for the extra guilt free factor this festive season. Why not try prepping your Christmas turkey with Cold Pressed Rapeseed Oil instead of butter for a beautiful crispy skin and a lot less saturated fat. Christmas is still about indulgence and oil doesn’t have to be flavourless. Infused oil like Borderfields Garlic Infusion* is extremely versatile for a wide variety of dishes, Boasting a high smoke point of approximately 240 degrees Celsius you know whatever you’re cooking is retaining all that flavour without spoiling. Each infusion has a fragrant, punchy aromatic taste without being overpowering so you can drizzle until your hearts content knowing it’s half the saturated fat of olive oil.
