How can I tell if walnut oil has gone rancid?

creepygirl | Nov 5, 2004 03:12 PM

I bought some walnut oil for the first time. I tried a little bit on a spoon and it has sort of a mildly astringent aftertaste. I know that walnut oil can go rancid pretty easily, but since I never tried it before, I'm not sure whether this is normal or a sign of rancidity.

Any guidance would be appreciated.
