How to Use
Use these raw nuts as a prop in product photography, for your in-store displays, or simply as a talking point.
The shelling of the palm nuts is the first step in traditional palm oil extraction. You can do shelling by cracking each nut with two stones and simultaneously separating the kernel and shell. The usage of nut-cracking stations has mostly replaced this human procedure.
The traditional method of extracting oil from palm kernels is to fry them in old oil or simply heat the dried nuts. Using a motorized grinder, the fried kernels are pounded or ground to a paste. The palm kernel oil is released by heating the paste with a tiny amount of water. You can skim the released oil from the top regularly.
