OUT OF STOCK…
OUR SEASON HAS COME TO AN EARLY CLOSE
THIS YEAR We have been battling Mother Nature to find a reliable source of stones that weren’t heat impacted, AND HAVE NOW RUN OUT OF OPTIONS.
We DO have some new orchards lined up for next season, so moving forward supply won’t be an issue.
This is very frustrating however it will give us the opportunity to work on some new products including our own oil and some skin care products that feature THE oil.
what are first-grade kernels?
Starting with new season, Australian grown apricot stones as our base, the kernels are hand-sorted to a high standard. We remove the broken and damaged ones, as well as pieces of shell and overly wrinkled kernels, as this indicates a low oil content. An exacting and time consuming process we remove as much as is practicable. The end result is our first-grade kernels.
Correctly dried and sorted seed will present with a mildly wrinkled appearance. Apricot kernels that have been dried too quickly or removed from their shell too early are often over smooth, with a powdery-looking skin. Apricot kernels should be sun dried naturally, within the protection of their shells, in order to avoid oxidization and to preserve maximum nutrient potential.
