Palm oil is gotten from the fruits of palm tree while palm kernel is gotten from the kernel of palm tree.


Here are the simple steps for making palm kernel oil at home


  • Crack  the kernel with a stone to get to the nuts inside. You can also purchase one that has already been shelled already.
  • After shelling or if you bought already shelled one, place the pot on medium heat and turn the kernel nuts into the pot.
  •  Gently use spoon to stir the kernel.( just like you roast groundnut) Keep stirring until the  oil starts coming out.
  • When the oil is completely extracted, the kernel will become very black
  • Use a strainer to separate the oil from the kernel and turn into a container for use.

Simple? Don't thank me yet.
