Emile Noel Walnut Oil: Non-GMO Month Review and Giveaway!

 

I’ll be honest with you all. I had NEVER tried Walnut Oil before now.

Have you?

So, when I was able to do a walnut oil review for Emile Noël Artisan Oils I did what I do when I’m not familiar with something – I googled it.

I found all sorts of recipes and other suggestions as simple as drizzling over pasta along with salt, pepper and fresh parmesan.

And so I tried it that way – drizzled over Costco tortellini (don’t judge) with some salt, pepper and parmesan. Ooooh, yummy.

And then I tried it in a homemade salad dressing instead of olive oil. Wow! I loved the creamy, nutty flavor it added.

Prior to trying walnut oil for the first time, I had never heard of Emile Noël artisan oils. But, I’m a new fan. It’s a family-run oil mill founded in 1920 in the south of France.

Here is why I am a new fan of Emile Noël artisan oils:

♦ they were the first oil millers in France to press organically-farmed seeds

♦ they have ONLY ever produced and marketed organic and non-GMO products – and organic foods have higher levels of Vitamin C and E, essential fatty acids, magnesium and more! *They have also gone on to become Non-GMO Project verified. Learn more about that here.

♦ they operate an organic-sesame supply chain in the north-east of Africa (fair trade)

♦ their oils are first cold-pressed virgin oils – this retains the value of their fatty acids and their vitamins

    Liked your facebook page but the widget won’t give me points
    Makes me think your contest is a scam to get personal info

      Wow! I’m sorry you think that. I contacted Tomoson who I am running the context through to let them know we’ve been having issues. Has it given you points for anything? These 2 giveaways are the first I have done with them so we are still working out the kinks.

      Hi! It’s my understanding that each person gets just one entry…but you can enter using Facebook, Twitter or Email. I may be mistaken though?

      Anyone else have input? I’ll check with the people running the giveaway but no one else has mentioned it…
