Rape Oil

Rape Oil -

Is obtained from the Seeds of the Rape plant, a member of the turnip family, cultivated in both Europe and Asia. It is employed chiefly in soap manufacture, for dressing wool, as an illuminant, etc. The crude fresh product, if cold pressed, is almost neutral in smell and taste, but age gives it a rank flavor and refining spoils it for table purposes. Commercially, the term "rape oil" covers in addition that expressed from several other Seeds, as those of the turnip proper, radish, etc. The Seeds are also known as "Cole Seeds."

The leaves of the plant are locally consumed as "greens" and in salads.
