Hand-roasted slowly to perfection, expeller-pressed, and lightly filtered following a 150-year-old traditional French method, La Tourangelle Pecan Oil has a mild, nutty taste but has the unique ability to enhance the flavor of ingredients. Lighter than olive oil, it is especially good for sautéing, stir fry, and braising. Pecan Oil is considered a healthy oil as it is rich in monounsaturated fats.
Suggestions: Use this Pecan Oil for salads and marinades or as a substitute for butter with pastas, potatoes, grains, and beans. Drizzle on grilled meat, fish, or even baked pastries for a light toasted pecan taste. Use this oil and Sorghum Syrup as ingredients to make a great southern cooked Pecan Pie!
About La Tourangelle
La Tourangelle has always been in the pursuit of uncompromising artisan excellence. The mainstay of all La Tourangelle’s creation is the taste. Eat food that tastes better. It is their nutritional wisdom. Flavor drives nutrition. Stir the emotion, enjoy and be beautiful.
La Tourangelle is the proud recipient of a time-honored tradition with origins in the Loire Valley of France. Since the Middle Ages, local artisans “Maître Moulinier” (Master Roaster) have mastered the art of roasting and pressing nuts kernels into delicious oils. La Tourangelle is one of these few remaining oil mills keeping this heritage alive in Saumur, France and since 2002, in Woodland, California. They are a family-owned company whose mastery of oil production is the fruit of passion, integrity, and pride.
La Tourangelle has been built on values of authenticity, heritage, and innovation. Their 150-year-old mill is keeping alive the traditional production method because they believe it is still the best way to retain all the flavors, nutrients, and health benefits that nature provides.
The oil mill in Woodland, California, produces oil from nuts grown in orchards near the mill, in the fertile Central Valley of California, or in Cooperative farms from Oregon. The highest quality nuts are selected.
