About Our Bulk Blanched Hazelnuts
Hazelnut trees, where our Blanched Hazelnuts come from, can trace their origins to the Mesolithic period. That was roughly 9,000 years ago around 7,000 BCE. Archaeologists uncovered a large pit, full of the ashes of hundreds upon thousands of burned hazelnut shells. Since hazelnuts don’t necessarily need to be roasted in order to be eaten, they are still commonly sold fresh in some areas.
Blanched Hazelnuts are not as commonly consumed in the Western World as the popular almonds, peanuts, and cashews. However, they are fantastic for many other uses.
✓ They’re delicious when mixed with various types of chocolate.
✓ They also find homes in baked goods and other confections as well.
✓ Our bulk Blanched Hazelnuts are also useful when blended up as a nut-butter (similar to peanut butter).
We advise you to store our Bulk Blanched Hazelnuts in the refrigerator or the freezer. Blanched Hazelnuts will last from between four to six months when stored in the pantry, due to their high oil content. In the refrigerator and freezer they will keep for up to one year.
Bulk Blanched Hazelnuts are rich in zinc. Zinc is an essential mineral that we need to consume every day, since our bodies do not store it. Like many nuts, they also contain a healthy amount of protein.
