sweet apricot kernels - bamyan

Our sweet apricot kernels are cultivated in two districts of Bamyan: Sayghan and Kahmard. In August, the fresh apricots dry on trees and are split open in September to collect the sweet apricot kernels. This produces sweet apricot kernels with a clean, crisp crunch and delicate sweetness reminiscent of marzipan, enhanced by a touch of Afghan salt and the warmth from light roasting.
