Black Oil

So the Oil I pressed from the black oil seeds doesn't clarify as clear as the previous oil I've been making. It's not as pretty. It tastes great, if anything I like it more... it's got a mellower taste without the bitter undertone the other stuff has. The 'color' of the oil is a lot like a high grade Olive Oil in its cloudiness... so it shouldn't be an impossible barrier. Pressing the un-shelled seeds is MUCH harder work. I think I might give up on these seeds until I have a gear, or something, to give me some mechanical advantage.

Tomorrow morning I'm going up to Yontville to pick walnuts... walnut oil next. After I work out how to husk, crack, and extract them.Local nuts, local oil.
