Join Clemson University oilseed crop researcher David Thornton and Virgin Oils Co-founder Mathew Rudolf to learn about ideal edible and high value specialty oil crops for our southern climate and lessons learned from their experience producing food and non-food grade oils. Clemson Extension Program food safety experts Kimberly Baker and Adair Hoover will provide information on regulatory guidelines for making and selling edible oils.
This workshop will cover: crop selection, process techniques, food grade processing guidelines and potential markets. Participants will perform hands on activities expelling and processing their own edible oils to take home. Participants should come prepared for both indoor and outdoor weather conditions and wear closed toe shoes and clothing that can get dirty.
