Expert Tips

* To toast hazelnuts, spread on cookie sheet; bake at 350°F. for 5 to 10 minutes or until light golden brown; cool. To remove skins, gently rub hazelnuts between fingers.

Hazelnuts, also known as filberts, are sweet, rich, grape-sized nuts. Hazelnuts have a bitter brown skin that is best removed by heating them at 350°F. for 8 to 10 minutes until the skin begins to crack and flake. Place a handful of warm nuts between layers of a clean dishtowel and rub vigorously to remove the skins. Hazelnuts are usually packaged whole, and can be used whole, chopped or ground in bread and dessert recipes and in a variety of main dishes, salads and side dishes.
