In this video, I am showing you the primitive method of Hunza women in extracting apricot seed oil . The flavor of this is so pure and very different from the oil extracted with modern machinery. The process may seem simple, but it really is time consuming.
The processes involved in extracting apricot oil are:
Drying the apricot seeds
Spreading the seeds from shell
Drying roasting the apricot kernels
Pounding the apricot kernels to make a hard dough like consistency called Mina in mortal and pestle
Making a smooth paste on a special stone slab called Sal
Kneading the paste in a stone pan called Gurkon while periodically sprinkling of water
Pressing the kneaded paste to extract oil
