We Love Hazelnuts!

Lately we’ve been obsessed with hazelnuts- they are something we always have on hand.  Hazelnuts are also known as filberts.  But really, doesn’t hazelnut just sound more appealing? Is it only me?

It seems, according to WikiAnswers, that: A filbert is the same thing essentially as a hazelnut. The term “filbert” is applied to the European variety because the bush that these nuts grow on is called a filbert bush because it blooms on St. Filbert’s day in late February. The American variety is called a hazelnut and is grown in Oregon and Washington.

Hmm.  That might explain my favoritism (well, coupled with the more pleasing feel of “hazel” over “Filbert”, of course).

Neither here nor there, really.  The important thing: Here in Prague, Albert has 500g bags (the store brand: Euroshopper) for 98,-kc.  If you dig, you can find bags filled with large nuts (Lískové ořechy)- which are sweet & delicious.

Take them home, stick them in the oven for approximately 10-15 minutes @ 180*c (be careful because this is a very easy nut to over-roast!), let them cool & you have a delicious snack!

  • The brown covering on the nuts (as pictured above) contains phytic acid, an anti-nutrient. Better if you can remove it before eating.

    Thanks! That’s interesting, I didn’t realize. Usually I remove most of it for flavor (& mess)- but I’ll definitely make a better effort knowing that.
