How to toast raw hazelnuts

I was going to lump this in with tomorrow’s Nutella truffle post, but I think this “how to” merits its own spot. Hazelnuts are versatile and taste great in a lot of dishes, especially baked goods, but aren’t often sold in their toasted and peeled variety. Typically, these are sold skin-on and un-toasted. It’s easy to toast and peel them yourself in 15 minutes. You can toast up a big batch and store them easily for use in whatever dish you are making, a salad, or just snacking.

Ingredients
  • 8 oz hazelnuts
Tools
  • tea towel
  • baking sheet
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 F.
  2. Spread the hazelnuts evenly over an ungreased baking sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes until the skins are crackled and blistered. Remove from the oven and cover with the towel for one minute.
  3. Move the hazelnuts onto the towel and rub gently to remove the skins. You may not remove everything, that's okay.
  4. Allow the hazelnuts to cool and use in your favorite hazelnut dish or as a snack!
