Whole hazelnuts are a popular nut in European and Eastern European cuisines. They are often used in sweet dessert dishes whole, ground, or mashed into a sweet paste. Hazelnuts have been made popular by such treats as Ferrero Rocher truffles, Nutella hazelnut spread, and Frangelico liquor.
It is true that roasted hazelnuts make a wonderful compliment to chocolate, almond, and cream flavors in truffles, mousses, cakes, and tortes. However, they can also be used to bring a sweet earthy flavor to savory dishes like stuffing/breading, pasta sauce, and glazes. Or enjoy a hazel nut snack in granola and muesli.
Hazelnuts are also known as filberts or cobnuts. A whole filbert nut can be recognized by its small round shape. They are the size of marbles, with a small point on one end. The nut itself is a rich cream color, and the exterior skin is a light brown. Hazelnut flavor has a mild nutty taste with sweet notes. The skin of hazelnuts is very slightly bitter. Hazelnuts are one of the richer, butterier nuts, comparable to chestnuts and cashews. They are rich in fats, proteins, and vitamins, while being gluten-free and kosher.
These hazelnuts come in a resealable bag for easy use and storage.
