This is the plant that the rapeseed oil (canola) is made of. It looks very pretty when it blossoms, fields are covered all with yellow, super pretty. The stalks have also oblong, very thin pods and inside these pods grow small seeds from which the oil is extracted.

I live very close to one of these fields so I will try to follow up its growing process.
In cooking I only use cold-pressed (non-refined) rapeseed oil as it is much healthier than the refined rapeseed oil. And to keep all the great vitamins I never heat it, I use it only in cold dishes and salads.
