Stony Brook Butternut Squash Seed Oil is
an all-natural, expeller-pressed, unrefined oil for flavoring or finishing uses.
It is pure oil made from the first pressing of 100% non-GMO butternut squash
seeds harvested and sourced exclusively from a neighboring product farm in
central New York.
Squash seeds are roasted, pressed and bottled at the Stony Brook WholeHearted Foods production facility in Geneva, New York.
The oil has a deep golden-colored hue with a nutty, buttery flavor reminiscent of toasted peanut or cashew. The oil is high in healthy mono- and polyunsaturated fats and is a rich source of vitamin E.
The oil pairs well with roasted vegetables, grilled meats and fish. It's also a fun alternative to butter over popcorn, mashed potatoes, or polenta. With a smoke point of 425 degrees, the oil is suitable for stir frying, sauteing or grilling.
Use as a finishing oil with hearty, house made soups or casseroles, in place of butter in regional comfort foods and as a marinade and sauce ingredient for fresh fish dishes.
