Apricot is a moderate, light, or strong orange to strong orange yellow colored edible fruit of the Prunus armeniaca – a deciduous Asian tree, which have alternate leaves and clusters of usually white flowers. The fleshy fruit encloses a hard nut surrounding a droplet-shaped, reddish-brown seed or pit. Its’ size ranges from small (about 25–30 g per fruit) to large (100–130 g).
Their flavor is almost musky, with a faint tartness that is more pronounced when the fruit is dried. Some people think of the flavor as being somewhere between a peach and a plum, fruits to which they’re closely related.

When fresh ginger is sun-dried it becomes dry ginger. Dried ginger is powdered and used in gravies, marinades and tea. Ginger is known for its medicinal properties. If ginger is unpeeled and then dried, it is called brown ginger. As opposed to this, if it is peeled and dried, then it is called white ginger. We pack the ginger in jute bags. We can also customise the packing on buyer request. Dried Ginger is nothing but fresh ginger which undergoes a drying process before being used. The fresh rhizomes are soaked in water overnight after which the outer peel is carefully removed using a knife or a peeler. They are washed again and then sun dried on mats or barbecues for around a week. During this period, they are turned periodically. The end result is a pale white dried ginger.

Pecan is a smooth, thin-shelled oval nut of a commercially important deciduous tree – Carya illinoinensis – native to central and southern United States. It is a member of the hickory family. The nut’s smooth, tan shell averages about 1 inch in length and, though hard, is relatively thin. The buttery-rich kernel is golden-brown on the outside and beige inside. Chopped or halved shelled pecans are available year-round in cellophane packages, cans and jars. Though unshelled pecans are also available throughout the year, their peak season is during the autumn months.
Pecans contain different forms of vitamin E, which protects blood lipids from oxidation. Oxidation of lipids in the body – a process akin to rusting – is detrimental to health. When the “bad” (LDL) cholesterol becomes oxidized, it is more likely to build up and result in clogged arteries. Thus just adding just a handful of pecans to one’s diet each day may help inhibit unwanted oxidation of blood lipids, thus helping prevent coronary heart disease.
Pecans can aid in weight loss and maintenance. According to this study/research peacan consumption may increase metabolic rates and enhance satiety. When used in conjunction with a healthy low-fat
Pine Nuts are the edible seeds of certain pines, such as the pinon. The seeds vary in size – are found enclosed in the cone which take 3 to 4 years to mature. The seed are cylindrical in shape and can be up to 2,5 cm in length. One tree can bear about 25 cones, each producing about 100 seeds.The two main kinds are the triangular Chinese pine and the slender Italian Pine nuts.
Pine nut oil extracted from the edible seeds of several species of pine, has a delicate, nutty taste and is used as a flavoring agent. The oil’s rich flavor makes it a good choice for marinades, for use on vegetables, or in salad dressings. Since pine nut oil has a relatively low smoke point, it is therefore not generally used during cooking.
Raisins are processed by sun drying and tray drying several different types of grapes. They are small and sweetly flavored with a wrinkled texture. Indian Raisins are available in different size and colors. They have a flavor similar to the grapes from which they are made, but the drying process which creates them concentrates the amount of sugar making them taste much sweeter. They are a naturally stable food and resist spoilage due to their low moisture and low pH.
The only raw material for making raisins is grapes. To make 1 kilo of raisins, over 4 Kg of fresh grapes are required. These grapes must have certain qualities in order to produce quality raisins. For example, they must ripen early and be easy to dry. Additionally, they must have a soft texture, not stick together when stored, have no seeds, and have a pleasing flavor. The most important grapes for raisin production include Thompson Seedless, Sonakka, Rudstalk. Raisin production for selected countries is forecast at almost 1.2 million metric tons (tons), up 100,000 tons from the previous year.
Turmeric (Curcuma longa) is native to tropical South Asia.
When not used fresh, the rhizomes are boiled for several hours and then dried in hot ovens, after which they are ground into a deep orange-yellow powder commonly used as a spice in curries and other South Asian and Middle Eastern cuisine, for dyeing, and to impart color to mustard condiments.
Its active ingredient is curcumin and it has a distinctly earthy, slightly bitter, slightly hot peppery flavor and a mustardy smell. Turmeric grows wild in the forests in Vietnam. it also is widely grown for commercial purposes.
It is one of the key ingredients for Asia countries (Vietnam, Indian, Persian and Thai dishes…) such as in curry and many more. Ancient medicine, Turmeric has recommended its use in food for its medicinal value.
The Vietnamese use turmeric mainly to add its natural orange or deep, bright yellow coloring to marinades. Turmeric has a mild, acidic flavor and a shape almost like the ginger root. Wear gloves when you use whole turmeric since it stains your skin.
