Hazelnuts are small marble-sized round brown nuts with a slight point on one end that are delicious in confectionery and desserts as well as savory soups and sauces. They have a rich, nutty, buttery, earthy flavor. Hazelnuts can be enjoyed raw, roasted, toasted, baked, and ground. Hazelnut flour is made by grinding whole, un-blanched, hazelnuts that sill have their skin on. The skin provides a slightly bitter flavor note and a hint of dark brown color flecked throughout the flour.
Recipes often call for ground hazelnuts to help evenly distribute the nutty hazelnut flavor. Typically, ground hazelnut flour can be substituted for ground hazelnuts, saving on prep time and effort.
Hazelnut flour can also be used to add richness to cakes, breads, pie shells, scones, and cookies. For savory dishes hazelnut flour can be used in fish or chicken breading, and as a thickener for soups and sauces. Adding gluten free nut flours to recipes will also add the healthy fats, proteins, and vitamins found in the nuts. Hazelnuts are also naturally kosher.
Store your hazelnut flour in a refrigerator or freezer to preserve freshness; however, flour should be thawed before using. This hazelnut flour is from hazelnuts grown in the USA, and arrives in a resealable bag for convenient storage.
