Hazelnuts are prized throughout Europe and elsewhere for their exquisite flavor and fragrance, and these delicious Turkish delights will win you over, too.
Unlike how they are often sold in the supermarkets, these hazelnuts have been blanched to remove their papery skins, so you can enjoy them straight away. Delightfully chewy when raw, hazelnuts turn wonderfully crisp when toasted, and they will have even more incredible sweetness this way. Just spread them evenly on a baking sheet and heat at 350 degrees until slightly darkened and wonderfully aromatic, tossing the nuts once or twice to color evenly. You can even do this ahead and then let them cool before stashing them in a covered container.
Toasted or not, hazelnuts offer all the health benefits you'd expect, with exceptional amounts of healthy fats, protein, and fiber (among other notable nutrients) making them an invigorating snack on par with other nuts, but with a one-and-only flavor.
