Switched Oils

As much as I looked, I could not find vegetable oil in glass or refill style for the recipes that I use at home, mainly bread. I decided that I would try using sunflower oil, it is in glass, but more expensive than vegetable oil. I will have to ask around at the farmer’s market and see if anyone makes oils, or maybe see if anyone is interested!

Changing oils did not make any noticeable changes in the bread flavour or texture. It’s all the same in my eyes! I will keep the bottles as someday I hope there to be liquid refill stations for products. They would make cute vases too. If ever I make fermented drinks or re start apple cider vinegar, they will make good storage options. Glass on PEI gets recycled by means of crushing and reusing as aggregate for construction. I believe we need to focuse on reusing a product as is, rather than adding more energy to its process or making it unreusable indefinitely.
