What can you do with oil that was extracted from plants?


Im going to extract some oil out of plants. But idk what I can do with it. I thought of making a candle or something like that. Do you have any other ideas?

If the plant is an olive tree, you can fry food in the oil.
If it is a pine tree... you can't.

Potatoes cooked in pine resin. Mmmm Mmmm good.

Seriously; it's like the only food dish cooked that way I've ever heard of but it gives great results.
I think it's in old editions of Joy Of Cooking.

If you do pine trees, you ought to be able to get turpentine too.
I don't recall if they're actually in the tree or products of pyrolysis, but turpentine and pine tar used to be fairly big industrial products.

I think a lot of longleaf pine down south was grown for this purpose.

EDIT: Nope, the Joy recipe is potatoes in rosin.
Not sure if that's the same thing as what I had served to me as potatoes in pine resin or not.

Rosin's like, more refined by the look of it (and smell).

Ebay says they need to get their hands on my bank account if I want to keep selling there.
This sounds like the best idea since putting ortho tricresyl phosphate in Ginger Jake.
I'm walking while I can still walk straight.
