Two entrepreneurial artisan producers have been burning the midnight oil to give one of Britain’s award winning and best selling culinary oils a be-smoke makeover.
Staal Smokehouse, the award-winning East Yorkshire smokery has joined forces with fellow family business Yorkshire Rapeseed Oil to create its first-ever Smoked Rapeseed Oil, which is hand crafted and smoked over oak and apple wood.
Owner Justin Staal and Yorkshire Rapeseed Oil’s Adam and Jennie Palmer spent months deliberating over a recipe for their new oil.
“Smoked food is really popular at the moment – with home smokers and barbecue restaurants popping up all over the place,” says Justin Staal, who makes an eight-strong range of delicately hand-smoked poultry and fish at Staal Smokehouse.
“I wanted to tap into people’s love of smoky food by giving home cooks a cracking culinary oil to work with too, but I wanted to use an oil that was pressed in Yorkshire.”
“Yorkshire Rapeseed Oil is already an award winner and has a natural, nutty flavour that takes other flavours really well and when Adam suggested a collaboration it was a perfect match. Watch this space as we’re already working together on the next range of smoked products!”
