Cottonseed Oil is an American innovation that has been used in gourmet food recipes for more than 100 years. This all started thanks to American inventor Eli Whitney and his creation of the cotton gin in the late 1800s. Shortly after, the first bottle of cottonseed oil was bottled in the United States in 1882.
Acala Farms is committed to continuing the tradition of making artisan, delectable, gourmet cottonseed oils, that are good for your health and full of flavor!
They are the first company to introduce a cottonseed oil product in both plain and flavor-infused varieties, bringing their product, and cottonseed oil in general, to even more kitchens across America.
As mentioned before, their cottonseed oils are heart-healthy, meaning they are both cholesterol-free and trans fat-free. But that’s not all! They’re also Gluten-free, certified pesticide-free, and friendly to people with certain dietary restrictions, such as Vegan and Kosher diets.
The defining feature that makes Acala Farms’ cottonseed oil stand out from the rest of the pack is their oils retain the culinary features of cottonseed oil, but they also bring the added benefits of being heart-healthy, gluten-free and pesticide-free cooking oils! You can’t say that with other cottonseed oils.
Acala Farms’ cottonseed oils also have a high smoke point. This means that their oils won’t burn, scorch or disappear in a cooking pan when heated at high temperatures. This makes them the perfect oil for frying, searing, sauteing, and stir-frying.
Now, for the delicious part: the flavors! You won’t find a better selection of unique cottonseed oil flavors from any other company. That’s because Acala Farms was the first company to introduce flavor varieties to cottonseed oil products.
Aside from their delicious original Pure Cottonseed Oil blend, they also have lots of yummy, flavor-packed oils, such as:
Sweet Guajillo Pepper
Fresh Roasted Garlic
and Fresh Cilantro
These flavors are perfect for adding a little spice, or a little bit of sweetness to any dish!
For example, the Fried Shallot can be used when browning meat, or to flavor steaks, to give it a nice deep and mellow rich shallot flavor. It’s also great on veggies such as asparagus, carrots, or broccoli.
The Hot Habanero Cottonseed Oil is a spicy blend that gives you just the right amount of heat and fire. It’s a great addition to any wing sauce recipe, or to add some tongue torch to your favorite meal!
Acala Farms doesn’t skimp out on flavor with their cottonseed oil blends. Check out their wholesale site to order these delicious gourmet cooking oils for your store, and give your customers something to talk about.

Even though the woodturner of Vermont Rolling Pins‘s family history dates back to the 1600s, this isn’t just the normal rolling pin you find at a big box store. The days of true artisan craftsmanship is back. Look no further than Vermont Rolling Pins for the highest quality pins.
Every Vermont Rolling Pin is hand turned and made with select, solid hardwoods. If you’re using the finest ingredients for that special dish, only the finest rolling pin will do. Vermont is known for its amazing greenery, and each pin is harvested from a sustainable Vermont millworker. There are three kinds of wood to choose from when selecting your rolling pin: Cherry, Maple, and Walnut. Cherry has a tight grain and is resistant to warping, and over time, this cherry wood will darken to a deep red.
Maple isn’t just used for baseball bats. This hard, strong and heavy wood resists abrasion, and you can find it in creamy white or tan with a reddish hue.
The final option for rolling pin wood is walnut. This rich, dense wood is a very popular choice for its distinct color range, from light gray-brown to a dark chocolate. This sturdy wood stands the test of time and heavy use.
Hand turned wooden rolling pins come in many shapes and sizes. Vermont Rolling Pins offers 12 different kinds of rolling pins. Each of these is masterfully crafted to your liking. The classic Shaker is a popular choice. It has the classic look that you’re used to seeing from a rolling pin. It features simple lines and a solid feel that weighs in at 3.5 lbs.
If you’re looking for easy circular rotation, look no further than the French rolling pin. The tapered ends allow for the perfect pie crust roll out.
Is pasta on the menu tonight? The custom Italian long pasta rolling pin has been a crowd favorite because it brings back the memories of Italian roots. This slim design allows for great pasta rolling.
Maybe you have a massive day of rolling ahead? In that case, check out the Monster. This is the biggest rolling pin Vermont Rolling Pins offers. This heavy duty tool will be sure to flatten all your obstacles.

If you go to Marge Margulies Pottery’s website, you almost need to start with the functional centerpieces page. All of her work is, without a doubt, aesthetically pleasing, well-crafted and touched with mellow yet cheerful hues, but her centerpieces are truly one of a kind; you’re not likely to find them anywhere else. One, fittingly called “Eclipse,” is a centerpiece composed of five deep dish charger plates each cut to resemble a phase of the moon and is meant to be displayed off center. Another has been made to create a sense of looking at the tops of waves at eye level, and another was inspired by topographical maps. To sum up her work in two words, and as she says of one set: “Useful and beautiful!”
Marge, an artist based in California, has more than 30 years in the business and creates pieces that you will want to have in your home for the rest of your life; they are timeless and of such craftsmanship, that you can guarantee they will last forever.
Marge has had her hands in clay since handprints in plaster were assigned in her kindergarten class, then through an apprenticeship with master potters, and all the way to a degree in ceramics from the Philadelphia College of Art. Her ideas took form as she watched her parents choose their mid-century modern furnishings with great care, and she began to develop an affinity for that design aesthetic which holds true to this day. Through many twists and turns showing her works at fairs, shops, and galleries, she has built her business with care and perseverance, starting with a couple small orders. For more than 30 years, customers who love bright, lively color, and stylish, functional ceramics have discovered and bought her work at more than 200 stores all across the country. The buyers she has dealt with know her as reliable and consistent and know to expect new ideas and an ease of ordering that produces results.
Not to be missed, however, are the many other offerings, such as the stylishly glazed Server Set with matching dipperette (perfect for serving appetizers). These sets feature a large plate (either 14″ wide and 18″ wide) with a coordinating dipperette.
Several pitchers are available in those pretty blue, green, yellow and orange colors in a range of styles and sizes.
They even offer a coordinating set for the dining table (different colors that work in harmony) that includes a dinner plate, salad/dessert plate, bread plate, bowl, ice cream bowl, mug, and cup with saucer. Of course, individual pieces, such as bowls, mugs, plates and a gorgeous harmonium vase, can all be purchased separately.
To take some of this beauty outside, consider getting a plant basket, a perfect home for your customer’s plants in a container that’s going to enhance whatever grows inside.
All of her work is hand thrown, lightweight, lead-free, and dishwasher safe, so you can be sure your customers are getting quality and practicality in these pieces that can only be considered art.
