This Key Lime Avocado oil is a monounsaturated oil and has a very high smoke point (The smoke point is the degree to which you can heat an oil before it burns (and then starts smoking). Butter has a smoke point of 350° F and Extra Virgin Olive Oil smokes at 375° F, but Avocado oil can go beyond 500° F. Not only will you love the Key Lime flavor, you will be making a heart healthy choice. This makes Avocado oil well suited to high temperature cooking, such as stir-fries, sautéing, or searing). We like to use this Key Lime Avocado OIl oil to Saute vegetables, brush on poultry or fish for grilling, in salad recipes or enjoyed alone as a dip for bread. Avocado oil is a great investment because it can be used as both a cooking oil and a finishing oil in one bottle. A carefully blended oil to achieve a lavish finish. We like to use Key Lime Avocado Oil to dress our corn-on-the-cob in the summer.
Our Key Lime Avocado Oil is cold-pressed which allows the oil to retain all of its natural flavor and nutritional benefits. Used by many chefs including English chef/televison host Jamie Oliver, Avocado Oil has seen a great increase in poplularity because of its great flavor and health benefits.

Jacksonville Mercantile's Avocado Oil with Key Lime has been one of my kitchen-mainstays for the past five years. I try to eat avocados every day, but during much of the year, finding avocados that are ripe is impossible, and so this oil helps to meet my health-needs. Better yet, the oil
adds a subtle zing to anything it's drizzled upon: hot corn on the cob; baked salmon; rice pilaf; sliced tomatoes. The oil tastes
delicate and fresh, and the lime adds a clean, subliminal, citrusy aftertaste.
