Since 1810, the Lepine family has been producing walnut and hazelnut oil - an ancient tradition producing a flavour which is unlike any other. Here the kernels are crushed and ground into a thick paste, secondly the paste is fried until it browns - this the difficult and most delicate part of the production because the savoury taste depends on the frying. The paste is then poured into a hydraulic press where the wonderful, golden oil drips out. Walnut oil is a healthy oil thanks to its high vitamin content and the quality of its fatty acids which actually help lower cholesterol levels. Walnut oil is available for purchase all year round.
