Bags of one or two pounds of apricot kernels (also called pits or seeds). Each 1 pound bag contains Approximately 700 seeds, 2 pound bags contain approximately 1400 seeds. These items sold as a food or spice ONLY! NO CLAIMS of any kind are made or implied.
These kernels are grown on North American apricot farms and are bare (without the hulls).
There is a lot of sales hype from some competitors regarding “sun drying” of apricot kernels. Some customers have become so confused by this sales technique that they have requested un-dried kernels! Let’s be clear on this subject: Our apricot seeds are NOT sun-dried. Almost no one’s are. Virtually all kernels available commercially are air-dried unless otherwise stated.
Kernels MUST BE DRIED by one drying method or another to avoid mold! Our kernels are air dried just like virtually all other distributors’ kernels. They are NOT cooked or steamed in any manner. This preserves the important nutrients and enzymes contained in the kernel without the danger of mold formation which ruins the seeds. Some other pits are steamed or cooked. Avoid these. If you are in doubt, please ASK!
