Greetings, fellow tiger nut enthusiasts! Today, let’s dive into the intricate process of how to make tiger nut oil, a culinary delight that stands at the heart of Gombella Integrated Services Limited’s commitment to quality. As your guide on this aromatic journey, I’ll take you through the steps of extracting liquid gold from these tiny, nutrient-packed tubers, employing the widely acclaimed cold press method.
Embarking on the journey of making tiger nut oil requires a set of essential tools. Ensure you have the following at your disposal:
With these tools in hand, we are equipped to unlock the essence of tiger nuts.
Begin by cleaning the tiger nuts meticulously, ensuring no shells, debris, or sand remain, as they can significantly impact the overall quality of the oil. This meticulous attention to detail is a hallmark of the Gombella quality standard.
To enhance the oil-extraction process, preheat the tiger nuts before sending them to the press. Set your oven to 120 degrees and evenly spread the tiger nuts on a baking tray. Allow them to bake for 10 minutes, preparing them for the pressing stage.
Enter the pivotal stage of pressing, where the expeller press takes center stage. Whether motorized or crank-style, the press becomes the conduit for squeezing the valuable tiger nut oil. Position a container strategically beneath the end cap to collect every precious drop.
Once the oil has been meticulously extracted, cover the container with cheesecloth and leave it undisturbed for several days. This patient waiting period allows debris to naturally float to the top. After this duration, a simple scooping action removes any impurities, leaving you with pure tiger nut oil.
For those seeking an extra level of clarity, a further purification step is advised. Heat the tiger nut oil to 120 degrees using a cooking thermometer. This gentle heating process enhances the clarity, evaporates excess liquid, and ensures any remaining debris is removed, leaving you with a pristine tiger nut oil.
The final act is to pour the purified tiger nut oil into a bottle and store it in a cool, dark place away from direct sunlight. This step ensures the preservation of the oil’s integrity, allowing you to savor the essence of tiger nuts whenever you desire.
In conclusion, mastering the art of how to make tiger nut oil is a blend of precision, patience, and dedication. At Gombella Integrated Services Limited, we take pride in this meticulous process, bringing you the finest tiger nut that encapsulates the spirit of quality and craftsmanship.
