So much cheaper than store bought. A delicately flavored oil usually used to infuse flavor on already cooked food. There are quite a few recipes on Zaar using Walnut Oil.

OK you have me sold! This was easy, the walnuts smelled wonderful while they were toasting, and here comes the best part of all the walnut oil gives a great new demotions to what ever you use it in. The only recommendations I would make is to make the walnut oil at least a day a head, the first day it was good how ever the dressing I made on the second day with what was left over from day one was really great. If you like using flavored oils, giving them as gifts, or would like to try giving new depths to your recipe this recipe is a must try. I will be using this a lot. Thanks for the post.
