Hazelnuts have been grown for thousands of years, and are first recorded as being cultivated in ancient China. They are better known as Filberts or Cobnuts by some. Enjoyed in Europe for generations, the hazelnut flavor has recently received more notoriety in mainstream America thanks to companies like Nutella and Ferrero Rocher.
Hazelnuts are a tree nut that grows in a hard shell. In shelled nuts the shell is removed and the nut is left in a thin brown skin. In blanched nuts the skin is removed with hot water. These hazelnuts have been blanched. Blanched nuts are popular for cooking and baking because nut skins have a subtle bitter flavor that is not always beneficial in all dishes. Buy hazelnuts that are already blanched to save time and mess in the kitchen.
Blanched Hazelnuts are a popular ingredient in cookies and confectionery like pralines, chocolate truffles, and pastries. Some traditional dishes feature hazelnuts, like the Kieve cake in Ukraine and Viennese tortes. It is also often turned into a ground hazelnut paste before use in mousses, pastries, and icings.
