Press release issued for Somerset fine food company, Fussels Fine Foods

For healthier, crispier and deliciously tasty roast potatoes this Christmas, use rapeseed oil (AND there’s no need to make a separate batch for vegetarians or vegans)

Make a FUSS Over Your roast potatoes and treat family and friends to the ultimate roast potatoes – with the award-winning Extra Virgin Rapeseed Oil from Somerset-based Fussels Fine Foods.

Sown, grown, pressed and bottled in Rode, North Somerset, this quality cold-pressed oil provides a genuine British alternative to olive oil, boasting better health benefits and cooking properties. Even those eating carefully can still indulge!

Why not try this simple recipe:

For the ultimate crisp and crunchy roast potatoes, heat a generous amount of rapeseed oil in a roasting tin and when really hot (around 220°C), add diced parboiled potatoes.   Return to the oven for around 45 minutes, turning the potatoes half way to ensure even crisping.

With generous servings of the essential fatty acids Omega 3 and 6, rapeseed oil contains lower levels of bad saturated fats than olive oil, but higher levels of good poly and monounsaturated fats, alongside vitamin E.

The oleic acid naturally found in the oil gives it a high smoke point of around 230°C, which makes it ideal for cooking at high temperatures.

Sown, grown, harvested, cold-pressed and in North Somerset, the rapeseed oil from Fussels Fine Foods is available from various UK stockists and online at www.fusselsfinefoods.co.uk.  It received a gold award under the ‘Sauce’ category at the 2007 Taste of the West Awards and provides a truly versatile culinary ingredient – also great for baking, frying, marinading or making dips and salad dressings.
