Off-tasting canola oil -- is it just me?

Off-tasting canola oil -- is it just me?

phoebek | Jul 31, 2006 06:36 PM

I've tried to use canola oil in cooking and have been unable to find one that doesn't taste "funny," at least to me--the best way I can describe it is "sort of fishy." I've tried a couple from Whole Foods (IIRC, one was store brand, one was Hain or Spectrum). More recently, a friend gave me a bottle of canola infused with basil, which I thought might be a nice seasoning for some sliced grilled potatoes, but alas, that same off-taste came through. Does anyone else experience canola the same way??
