DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Spread the nuts out on a metal baking pan or a large sheet pan with ridges.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes or until they are very hot and fragrant.
  • Carefully dump nuts into a dish towel which you’ve spread across the counter - a ridged dish towel or one with some sort of embroidery works well because it provides more friction.
  • Bring the ends of the dish towel up around the still-hot hazelnuts and wrap them up like a present.
  • Using your hands, rub them between the towel and the work surface so that the friction created by the rubbing loosens the skin.
  • Discard the skins and enjoy the toasted hazelnuts whole or crush them for your favorite recipe.
