I just cut this batch. 85% tallow, 15% castor, 1.25 t confectioner's sugar in 20 oz oils. I insulated but didn't CPOP. The cranberry seeds in the center of the loaf discolored but the ones on the ends stayed nice and red.

Any ideas what could have happened? I'm thinking the seeds in the center got scorched from the heat of saponification which didn't make it through to the ends of the loaf as much. Thoughts?ImageUploadedBySoap Making1387124896.597676.jpg

I've seen seeds discolour and not evenly. Over time they may all discolour like that on you...

Maybe they got hotter than the others and it accelerated the discoloration of the seeds.
