Hazelnut, a nut from the species Corylus, is also known as a filbert nut. Hazelnuts are grown commercially in Turkey, Italy, Greece, Cyprus, Georgia, the Spanish region of Catalonia, and in Washington and Oregon. Oregon out produces Washington on a scale of almost two to one. Over seventy percent of the world’s production is grown in Turkey. Documented use of hazelnuts date back over 9000 years. Currently, they are frequently used to produce hazelnut oil, in dessert and cookie recipes and are the primary ingredient in commercially available Nutella.Hazelnuts are harvested in the autumn. We source our hazelnuts from Oregon and they are only available skin on.
