The Most Used Method Of Producing Your Own Vegetable Oil And Does Not Require Much In Terms Of Equipment

Knowing how to make your own vegetable oil is a great skill to have in case a catastrophic event occurs. If you want to make soap, cooking oil, candles, or body oils from scratch, retrieving the oil is step one. This is actually a fun process if you like working with your hands and doesn’t require much in the way of equipment so, if you’re ready, let’s make some oil!

There are many reasons why you may want to make your own vegetable oil and lard. Homemade oils are free of the bleach and other chemicals that are in commercial products. They also taste better and are, in most cases, cheaper to make than to buy. Nut and seed oils are expensive, but for as little as $15 or so, you can grow enough seeds to keep you in oil for the rest of your life.

Wild Lettuce is also Known as Opium Lettuce. For a good reason. While it doesn’t contain any opiates, it has similar side effects when used – it acts directly on the central nervous system (CNS) to lessen the feeling of pain, just like morphine. Watch this video and learn a quick recipe (wild lettuce extract) for the best natural painkiller. Over 23 million Patriots have already seen It.

Getting Started with Vegetable Oil

The first thing that you need to do is decide what type of oil you’d like to use. The entire world of nuts and seeds is at your disposal but some are better than others. It also depends upon what you want to use it for.

{adinserter usdeception}If you want an oil that adds flavor to your food or makes a great-smelling body oil or soap, you may want to use nuts or seeds such as almond, pumpkin, hazelnut, or coconut (yeah, I know – it’s not technically a nut).

If you’re shooting for an inexpensive, all-purpose oil that is easy to grow just about anywhere, sunflower seeds are probably your best bet. There are two different kinds of sunflower seeds – the ones you eat (confectionary) and the ones used for bird seed (black oil). The black oil seeds produce twice the oil and costs about $15 for a 40-pound bag. You get about a quart of oil from a 2-liter bottle of seeds.

The most cost-efficient way to use the seeds that you buy is to plant them and grow an entire crop instead of just using them directly for oil. Sunflowers are easy to grow; they don’t require much space or water to thrive and if you save some seeds back, you’ll never have to buy another bag.

Once the heads sag and the petals fall off at the end of the season, you’ll know that they’re ready to harvest. Lop off the head and hang it up to dry. Then just rub the seeds out with a piece of durable cloth. Easy.

If you’d rather use other nuts or seeds, here are some yields per quart of oil:

  • Walnuts – 2.9 pounds
  • Hazelnuts – 3.6 pounds
  • Peanuts – 4.6 pounds
  • Pumpkin and sunflower – 5.3 pounds

Remember that though you may get a lesser yield from pumpkin and sunflower seeds, they’re dirt cheap and a piece of cake to grow compared to nuts!

Making Oil

Oil presses used to be extremely expensive, but you can get small ones that will do just fine for home production for about $125. If you buy used, you can get them even cheaper and they’ll last forever.

You can even make your own. They’re simple pieces of machinery that have a funnel for you to put the seeds in, a crank that you use to push the seeds through the extractor, a heating section that heats the oil, an exit for the oil, and an exit for the pulp. That’s it.

It’s important to clean your press well after you use it though because oils go rancid quickly and you don’t want to ruin a fresh batch.

The process is simple.oil-press

  • Set up your machine.
  • Fill the heating unit with the recommended flammable and light.
  • Allow it to heat – this takes about 10 minutes.
  • Pour your seeds into the hopper.
  • Crank your butt off – it takes about 20 minutes to make 14 ounces of oil. That’s about a 2-liter bottle full of seeds.
  • Remove your container of fresh oil and cap tightly.
  • Clean your machine.
  • Your oil will be black, assuming you’re using black oil sunflower seeds. Once it sets for a few days, the sediment will settle to the bottom.
  • Siphon off the oil and discard the sediment.
  • Store for up to 2 years in a tightly-sealed container in a cool, dry place.

Different oils have different shelf lives but for the most part, seed and nut oils are good for at least a year, and often 2-3. If the oil is rancid, it will change colors and smell off. The taste won’t be pleasant, either.

That’s all there is to making vegetable oil. You now have a high-quality product to cook with or to use as a base for soap, candles, lamp or bio-fuel or body oils.
