With an aroma of asparagus and a smooth, herbal flavor, this oil is delicious as a finishing oil in risotto, whisked into a vinaigrette, or made into a dip with pureed, roasted vegetables. Camellia also has a high-smoke point of 485 F, making it useful in the kitchen for sautéing. Grunsfelder Organic Oil Mill is the first industrial oil mill in Germany.
