I've got a recipe that calls for walnut oil as a main flavouring ingredient. I've seen those half-litre bottles at Loblaws and other grocery stores, I'm hoping to find a smaller bottle -- partly because it's expensive, but also because I've heard that stuff goes rancid really fast and I'm not sure how often I'll be using it.
Any ideas on where I could find any? Bonus if they sell small bottles of other fancy oils/vinegars/etc -- I'm always curious to try them but reluctant to drop $15 on something I might only use once.
The Spice Trader/Olive Pit on Queen W has lots of fancy oils and vinegars, though I can't remember if I saw walnut or not. It could be worth a phone call.
If you can't find a small container of walnut oil and still end up buying it, keep it refrigerated. You can find "La Tourangelle" brand oils at Fresh From The Farm and some other locations. If you lived near me and knew how to contact me, I'd give you some.

Lady York, Dufferin, south of Lawrence. If you want to get ripped off, you go to Pusateris. Watch out: this oil goes rancid very fast.
