it will get you very sick or possibly kill you. Linseed oil is used in woodworking for polishing furniture. Please do not make the substitution. It is not the same as flax seed oil.What will replacing vegetable oil with linseed oil do to your brownie recipe?
NO linseed and flax seed are NOT the same thing. linseed is not an eatable oil and will make you sick. if you recipe calls for liquid oil you can use any cooking oil or nut oil even melted butter.
someone emailed me and asked me about this and this is what i found. I knew it was poisonous but was never told why.
even tho it comes from the same plant oil labeled as flax seed is suitable to eat but oil labeled as linseed is not
';Today most products labeled as ';boiled linseed oil'; are a combination of raw linseed oil, petroleum-based solvent and metallic dryers. The use of metallic dryers makes boiled linseed oil inedible.';

It's actually a very healthy oil with some good benefits but can also be used to nourish your cutting boards. I suspect that making brownies with this oil will give someone the ';runs';.
I would not advise it. They're not the same type of oil source so they won't have similar tastes.
I know nothing about linseed oil. Is this something to oil doors or furniture with? If so, this is a stupid question.
