Grapeseed Oil

I'm a big grapeseed oil fan. It's a light, almost tasteless oil that can be used for frying, sautéing and because it is so mild it's also great for making salad dressings. 

Over the years I've found that the best bet for me, in my area anyway, is to hit up a Middle Eastern market for it, both for availability and price. So you can imagine how thrilled I was to find this at Costco, and reasonably priced too. 6 dollars and some change for this 2qt bottle.

I don't believe I've ever seen the oil so green. At first I thought it was the bottle that was green until I decanted it into my little oil bottle. The oil I'm used to using is much lighter in color, so I had to do a taste test.

It is not as tasteless as the clear oil is, it has a slight hint of olive oil taste, ever so slight. Also, it does not leave a lingering, mouth coating film, it's very fresh and clean feeling and tasting. 

It's has some health benefits which I will leave for you to Google. I use it because I love it and I think it's a great all around healthy oil. 

 

And that's that
