Where would I find Walnut Oil?

I have a recipe that calls for Walnut Oil....I've never heard of it. Is it something I have to make myself or would I find it in a specialty store?

Thanks In Advance,

It's a specialty oil. Your best bet is a specialty food store, or you could Google it.

Where in Texas are you? I know that Whole Foods and HEB Central Markets have the oil. It is awesome. I love pumpkin oil too - FANTASTIC drizzled on salads and vegetables.

I get mine at Safeway, but it is in the health food section, not with the regular oils.


Good Luck!

Does walnut oil have an extremely limited shelf life or am I thinking of something else? :?

Can't be that limited or you wouldn't find it at Safeway! Maybe after it's opened, tho. Dunno.

I believe that nut oils are much more perishable than others. I keep my nut oils (walnut, pumpkin, flax, macadamia) in the fridge.

Ah, gracias! I've never really used nut oils. I will have to expand my horizons!

They are wonderful. They add an extra element to everything - baked goods, salads, sautes, and grilled meats. You are not supposed to cook with either pumpkin or flax seed oil - these are meant to be finishing oils. Pumpkin oil is very unusual - it looks like used motor oil - very greenish black and somewhat thick. Its flavor is strong - very nutty and rich. I love it on salads, rice pilaf, chicken etc. I think you should vow to try something new!
