Chili Cumin

Holy chili. Any chili. Yup. And fish tacos and chicken burritos and even in your guacamole. Mix with orange or grape marmalade and slather on pork tenderloin. Bake or grill. Amazing. Also fantastic drizzled on four-cheese flatbread, your favorite pizza and over freshly baked autumn squash.

    Actually, the Acala Farms products are simply putting cottonseed oil back onto the radar of American home cooks. Sarah points out that cotton has been a food crop for more than 100 years and cottonseed oil appears in salad dressings, shortenings and even ice cream. It’s long been used in restaurants for deep-frying because it has such a high smoke point.
