    Any suggestions for pumpkin seed oil usage? Is it a dominanting flavor combined with other oils? Haven't worked with it yet, but have a sample and could use some ideas for either salads or hot dishes. What seasonings are reccommended as compliment to the flavor?
    Thanks

    Roasted pumpkin seed oil
    This rich, dark green oil is made in Austria from skinless pumpkin seeds. It has a nutty flavour and toasted aroma. It is high in unsaturated fats and contains essential vitamins including vitamin E.
    Uses: Ideal for dressings, sauces and marinades. Drizzle over roasted vegetables for a delicious nutty flavour. Roasted pumpkin seed oil also adds a nutty taste when drizzled over ice cream.
    To store: Store in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight.

    Good luck! More later!
