Removing Skins from Hazelnuts
You can easily remove skins from shelled hazelnuts and then enrich their flavor by toasting. Spread the nuts in a single layer in a baking pan. Bake at 350° for 10 to 15 minutes or until the nuts are toasted and the skins begin to flake. Transfer nuts to a clean kitchen towel; rub against the towel to remove skins.
