These are fresh, high quality, air-dried, Malatya-grown
apricot kernels which have not been steamed or cooked and, thus, retain their full
compliment of natural nutrients. Because of their unusual flavor, many of our customers consider them to be a spice. As with most spices, however, the flavor may not be pleasing when consumed alone or in large quantities. One would not expect to eat a handful of pepper corns, for example, without experiencing an adverse reaction. Likewise, one should not expect to enjoy eating apricot kernels straight out of the bag - although we are
informed by many customers that they do not mind the taste
that way and even have come to like it.
