Apricot Kernel Oil

· virgin ·
100 ml

BIO PLANÈTE is the only oil mill offering fair trade certified apricot kernel oil. The apricot kernels for our virgin oil come from a fair trade project in the Malatya province in the South of Turkey. 

The particularly aromatic, not sulfurized, sweet apricots of the sorts Hacihaliloglu, Tokali, Hasanbey, and Sekerpare are harvested from June on and air-dried for a few days. Afterwards, the kernels are removed from the fruits and cracked. The carefully extracted sweet seeds are then first cold-pressed in our oil mill in Southern France. This way, the exquisite aroma of this gourmet oil is ideally preserved.

With its nutty, almond-like savor and a hint of marzipan, this oil improves exotic dishes, sweet-piquant variations, as well as meat and fish recipes. Add a unique aroma to desserts like crêpes, fruit salads, crèmes, and custard. Or experiment with apricot kernel oil when baking.

Fair Trade certified according to the Fair for Life standard. Visit www.fairforlife.org to learn more.
