DIY LOUNGE - How to make Palm Kernel Oil - 1

Am still trying to figure out why Palm kernel oil isn't one of the most expensive oils in the market! Jeez, this is by far the most stressful DIY I have ever done. The process is quiet long, so, I would be breaking this post into two parts!

WARNING! WARNING!WARNING!
 If you never liked DIYS, if you lazy and if you do not have a single DIY bone in your body, you can STOP reading now and proceed to African naturalista store to get yours..LOL)..


Tools
Hammer / stone
Bowl
Container
Pestle and mortar (lol)
Old pot

Ingredients
Palm fruits
Water

DIRECTIONS :::
STEP 1
  Pour your Palm fruits into a medium sized pot, add just enough water to cover the Palm fruits and then cook for 20 mins or till it gets soft. Sieve out the water used in cooking


STEP 2
  Pour into a mortar and pound with a pestle,till the skin separates from the kernel.

STEP 3
  Spread the kernel on a tray and leave under the sun to dry.

STEP 4
  Using your hammer, separate the nut from the shell.





We would be stopping here for today, I would really want you guys to try this even though it's kind of stressful! You have 7days to get just 4 steps done and I know you can do it. Please share your progress in the comment section.


NB : drying the nuts takes about a day or two, it depends on the generosity of the sun.



SIDEBAR :   Aurora Jennifer and Oreoluwa Adeyinka  haven't been dropping comments lately, I really hope you guys are okay!

  2. Haa. You went ahead to make the oil yourself? You are real gangster.

    On the contrary, it is actually one of the cheapest oils in the market. I guess the commercial producers have machines they use to crack it.

  3. The problem is if I extract the nuts, most of them will end up in my belly. I'll just buy the oil, no need to deceive myself.
