Sweet Apricot Kernels from Afghanistan

A snack for good.

Roasted apricot kernels look like almonds. They taste a bit like them, too: crunchy, nutty, slightly sweet, a bit smoky, but with a beautiful bitterness that’s all their own. Dusted with a bit of salt, they’re as irresistible as a great peanut. Because they aren’t nuts—they’re the pits of sweet apricots—people with nut allergies can eat them. A great snack any time of day. 
 
The apricots are grown in Bamyan Province, about 150 miles northwest of Kabul in central Afghanistan. Each September, after the apricot harvest, the kernels are dried to preserve them. They're then sent down the road to Kabul, where they're packaged by Ziba, a company set up with the express purpose of helping women in Afghanistan make a sustainable living.
