Last Thursday we went to Huilerie Lacroix in Couhé with our neighbour Annie, to have our nuts pressed. We’ve been looking forward to this, after spending many a happy evening cracking our nuts. We guessed we had about 8 kilos of shelled nuts and we weren’t far off. 2 kilos of nuts will make 1 litre of oil, so 4 litres will be plenty for us to use. We thought we had a lot but Annie had over 20 kilos!! It was such an interesting afternoon and the owner was so informative. I will add captions to the photos to guide you through the process. We just need to let the oil settle now for 2 weeks, then it can be popped into a nice bottle and used to make delicious dressings and baking.
