So, what is de palmiste?

De palmiste, also known as palm kernel, is a versatile food ingredient derived from the kernel or seed of the oil palm fruit. It is commonly used in many dishes, particularly in African and Southeast Asian cuisine, as a source of oil, fat, and flavor. The kernels are first extracted from the palm fruit, then roasted, ground, and pressed to extract the oil. The resulting by-product, de palmiste, has a nutty flavor and a dense texture, making it perfect for adding richness and depth to soups, stews, and sauces. It is also a popular ingredient in baked goods, such as cakes and cookies, due to its high fat content. De palmiste is a sustainable and eco-friendly ingredient, as it is a by-product of the palm oil industry and helps reduce waste.
