HAZELNUTS, PEELED - Kosher/Gluten Free



Hazelnuts are also called Filberts and are grown in clusters on the Hazel Tree in temperate zones around the world. The Hazelnut has a fuzzy outer husk that opens when ripe exposing a smooth hard shell. Hazelnuts can be round and spherical or oblong and pointy in shape. Predominately used in baking, dairy, and confections industries, Hazelnuts provide high-quality monounsaturated fats. Hazelnuts have a bitter brown paper-thin skin that is usually removed before eating. Reddish-brown to dark brown in color with a cream to tan colored interior, Hazelnuts flavor is mild, yet richly sweet with a woodsy nutty flavor. Roasting, chopping, and grinding increases the volatile flavors of the hearty Hazelnut. Compatible with a wide variety of foods, the Hazelnut may be substituted for any other nut in a recipe. Rich in Vitamins B, C, and E, Hazelnuts are a great source of protein.
