Pure Almond Oil (J. Leblanc)
Pure Almond Oil (J. Leblanc) Be the first one to write a review

J. Leblanc has changed little since 1878, the year it was founded. It is still run by a Leblanc, Jean-Charles, grandson of the founder. It is still located in the southern most village of Burgundy, Iguerande, and it still manufactures the highest quality, small-batch, handcrafted nut oils in France.... if not the world.

J. Leblanc starts with the careful selection of the absolute highest quality whole nuts available, grown on many of the same farms that J. Leblanc has been doing business with for generations. For each batch of oil about fifty-four pounds of nuts are ground into a paste using the huilerie's original granite mill. In order to guarantee an even roast, this paste is constantly stirred in a roaster for 10 minutes. The roasted paste is then transferred to a mechanical press where it is divided in half and separated with filter cloth. The oil is expressed at 22,000 pounds of mechanical pressure. After pressing, the oil rests from seven-to-fourteen days to allow the sediment to settle before bottling. This is a labor, and time, intensive process which produces only 300 liters a day. These nut oils are pure, unadulterated, unfiltered, and unrefined.

J. Leblanc nut oils are made to order.

One of the most important facts about Huilerie Leblanc's production is not the "how" but the "when". Since Huilerie Leblanc does not have large storage facilities, or refining capabilities, production takes place when orders come in - guaranteeing the freshest nut oils delivered to your door. It's not only a difference you can taste - in their clean, bright, and deep flavors, but also extends their longevity by up to a year.

In the United States, J. Leblanc is finding its way to renowned restaurants like The French Laundry, Mandalay Bay, Delfina, Campanelli, One Market, 231 Ellis, and Hawthorn Lane to name a few!

  • Nut oils can be used for salad dressings with quality vinegar such as champagne, Banyuls, sherry, or raspberry. The usual ratio is three parts oil to one part vinegar.

Please refrigerate J. Leblanc nut oils after opening.

Hog Heaven Spice Blend

Same great product, new label design!

Pollen Ranch hand harvests wild fennel pollen from private organic farms in California where fennel grows wild. They not only offer pure fennel and dill pollens, but Chef Bernard has taken these pollens to the next level, combining them with other herbs and spices to create a very special line of spice blends to complement and enhance vegetables, seafood, poultry, pork, beef, lamb, and even desserts!!

Your pork and chicken will never be the same when they’re encrusted in this warm and toasty herb and seasoning blend. Crushed pecans give a nutty flavor, and cumin adds a touch of savory smoke that goes perfectly with any pork or poultry dish. Light citrus tones brighten and balance the flavor of this warm, aromatic blend. Add a dash to your chicken and dumplings to add depth of flavor, or roll a pork tenderloin in it before roasting for a mellow spiciness that compliments the tender pork exquisitely. Nutty, flavorful, and delectable, this will be your "go to" seasoning for poultry and pork.

This is a "secret ingredient" that will surprise and amaze your guests.

Bon Appetit named Pollen Ranch to the Top 15 Italian Pantry Staples Made in America! Try this magical Hog Heaven Spice Blend to create amazing dishes in your own kitchen.

Ingredients: Pollen Ranch Fennel Pollen, crushed toasted pecans, dried chervil flakes, Fleur de Sel (sea salt), ground cumin, ground annatto, lemon peel
