Pumpkin seed oil

Pumpkin seed oil is a very Austrian thing. Recently we were in Vienna and one morning for breakfast we had scrambled eggs that were drizzled with the pumpkin seed oil. I was instantly hooked. Some drops of the pumpkin seed oil took the eggs to another level. Completely.

Pumpkin seed oil is made of roasted pumpkin seeds so the taste is very intense. I have now a small bottle in my fridge and am using it for eggs and in salad dressings. It is truly wonderful.

Just make sure you buy the oil that has been made from a very first pressing. And do not use it in cooking, all the good things get destroyed then.

You can try it drizzled on top of vanilla ice-cream. In Slovenian region where they make the pumpkin seed oil is this a big hit for serving.
If you have a bottle of 100per cent of pumpking seed oil, u can mix it with any other oil, when using for salad dressings. Your bottle of pumpkin seed oil will last longer and the dressing will still have proper pumpkin seed taste.

Enjoy... ;)
