Nut oils are one of the secret weapons of the great cook. Like high quality extra virgin olive oil, they pack a big punch of flavor in a little package. They make sensational vinaigrettes. They are delicious drizzled on cooked vegetables, grains, or fish. They are delicate so you don’t cook with them. You use them to impart a rich nutty flavor. Unfortunately, they are usually quite expensive.
This month, Trader Joe’s has a trio of nut oils – hazelnut, walnut, pistachio – on sale for $14.99. I know that sounds expensive but that’s a huge bargain. Three 8.45 oz. cans for $15! Jump at this sale. Get to Trader Joe’s and snap it up.
