D & I arrive in London and caught the bus to Oxford. I was prepared for drab and dreary... but not this brilliant yellow in the fields. Wow, did we luck out! We arrived at the peak of the rapeseed season. Rapeseed is now the fastest growing vegetable oil in the UK. It has the lowest saturated fat content of any cooking oil – half that of olive oil – and is rich in Vitamin E and omega-3 and 6 fatty acids Rapeseed is what makes canola oil... who knew? Certainly not I.
What a gift to take in this shock of color. These photos don't begin to do justice to this amazing mustard color.
