Looking for something a little bit different? While they resemble almonds in their appearance and texture, apricot kernels have a crunchier consistency and a distinctive, slightly sweet flavour.
After being carefully harvested, the apricots are washed, halved, and pitted. The shell of the kernel is cracked open, and the kernel inside is gently sun-dried. The process is very eco-friendly, and solar drying helps preserve the natural flavour and goodness.
Apricot kernels are a fantastic source of healthy fats and omega acids. They also have small amounts of amygdalin, a naturally occurring chemical compound that can be harmful in huge doses, so please heed the safety warnings and do not consume excessively!
Apricot kernels are perfect for everyday snacking, smaller, more delicate and with a unique tart flavour.
