#1

Can anyone offer the 101 on how they extract their oil from their flaxseeds?
Pestel and mortor?then what...(yes I r ignoramus)
Got a 1.5 pound bag of organic falxseeds. how long you reckon these'll last if i want to take 2tblspoons of flax a day?


#2

The oil is "extracted" when you grind the flax seeds up. Most people use coffee grinders to do that.


#3

you won't be able to press the oil from those seeds. If you want to use Flax oil......buy Flax oil.

The seeds can be ground in a coffee grinder to make flax meal. 1/4 cup of seeds yields 1/2 cup meal. Pour boiling water over and stir until you get oatmeal consistency. sprinkle with sweetner, cinnamon/sf maple syrup.
Very nutritious breakfast.

keep your seeds in freezer for long term storage.

PS: all that fiber takes about 24 hours to work it's magic......then you will be clean as a whistle!!
