Wharfe Valley Farms Rapeseed Oil

A week or so ago I was sent a few bottles of Wharfe Valley Farms Rapeseed Oil to try. I’ve always wanted to try rapeseed oil as I’ve seen quite a lot surrounding the health benefits (it has a lower saturated fat than other oils) so was keen to try it the following weekend.

I was sent 2 different flavours to try; plain rapeseed oil and a lemon infused flavour. I tried the lemon flavour in a courgette salad (grated courgette, a grated clove of garlic and a few glugs of oil). It has a strong lemony flavour however I found it a bit perfumey/zesty for my taste, I prefer a tart, zingy lemon flavour. However I’ve seen on their website that it’s been used in a shortbread recipe which sounds a perfect use!

I also tried the plain oil for cooking which was delicious! They’ve got a wide range of flavours on their website (the black pepper and smoked ones look fantastic) so I’d definitely recommend a nosey.

The oils range from around £4-£7 depending which you get and seem worth the money, you can tell they’ve very good quality! They also have a nice little gift pack priced at a very reasonable £8, perfect for a Christmas present…


This was sent to me for free however views are my own.
