Hazelnuts are also know by the Americans as filberts. They have a sweet, mild flavour and are mainly used in cakes, biscuits and pastry. They are mainly grown in Turkey, Italy, Spain, and the United States. The majority of the world's crop comes from Turkey.
Buy small quantities of hazelnuts as they can oxidise easily and turn rancid. Best to buy from a store with a high turnover of produce to guarantee freshness.
Hazelnuts can be stored in an airtight bag or container in a freezer for up to a year, or in the fridge if you want quick and easy access to them.
Tips & Tricks:
Allow them to warm to room temperature before using in baking or cooking applications.
A serve of hazelnuts is equal to about 20 nuts.
To roast, lay the nuts on a flat baking sheet in a preheated oven (180 degrees C) for 15 - 20 minutes, turning regularly.
