A Lâ€™Olivier have re-issued a lot of their nut oils in 150ml tins, reflecting the quality and scarcity of many of the ingredients. This precious Argan Oil is now organic.
Produced by the women of Morocco for centuries, Argan nuts grow from bushy trees on arid land. The nuts are dried in the sun before being crushed, and the paste is then heated to release the valuable oil, which is quite a contradiction in terms as it is both delicate and intensely flavoured. It makes an interesting alternative to olive oil as a dressing, and is wonderful when used in couscous and bulgur wheat salads.Â
