TYPES OF PINE NUTS  - PROPERTIES  PINE NUTS
 

CHINESE KERNELS: Called "Keg Type" because of their shape. They are smaller than our kernels and their flavour is not as good as ours.

UNTIMELY PROCESSED KERNELS: This type of kernels are got from the pine cones by an artificial way. The pines cones are boiled in water just after they have been harvested, when the kernels are still undone. This is the reason for they have a white colour and a little piece of skin at the tops. Moreover, the flavour of theses kernels is not as good as the sun processing kernels as we will say below. In addition, the germination is not possible with this kernels, so the plantantion is not possible with them.

SUN PROCESSED KERNELS: This is the natural way to process this item. The pine cones are harvested from December to April. Afterwards, the pine cones keep onto big heaps awaiting for the summer sun to hit them to be opened.

With this natural way of processing, we can get the following profits:

  • a) The complete maturation of kernels, securing the characteristic flavour of the Spanish Kernels.
  • b) The natural colour of these kernels is yellowish, but not white.
  • c) After the kernels are cracked, they are brushed. Therefore, we get a nice dry and bright kernel, with a natural flavour.
  • d) Afterwards, the sorting of the kernels is by a colour selection machine and finally, by hand.
 
  • e) Therefore, the kernels processed in this way, kept in a cool and dry place ( from 8 to 20 degrees ) and suitably packed in jute bags, glass jars or plastic bags, can be stored for a very long time.
  • f) These kernel, with shell can be used for planting.
  • g) The inconvenient of this way of processing is that the producers do not recover the money invested until 9 months from the investment was done. On the other hand, they can offer kernel of a very high quality. This is the way we produce organic kernels.
