What does apricot oil taste like?
The rich yet fine nuttiness of this oil makes it complementary to many types of dishes, from soups and salads to pasta. Although almond oil and apricot kernel oil taste quite similar, apricot kernel oil offers a more nuanced, fresher and more botanical aroma and taste which is quite captivating. We recommend using one tablespoon daily over a variety of dishes.
