Storing & Roasting Oregon Hazelnuts (Filberts)

[USDA Nutrient Data for Hazelnuts]
Hazelnuts Compared with Other Nuts] [Recipes]

Storage Recommendations:  Both shelled and in-shell hazelnuts can be stored in the refrigerator from between 32 to 35 degrees Fahrenheit for up to 1 year.  Stored in the freezer at 27 degrees Fahrenheit or colder, they can be successfully stored for up to two years.  It should be noted that shelled hazelnuts can pick up odors and flavors if not stored in airtight containers.

Oven Roasting:  Spread shelled hazelnuts in a shallow pan and roast in an oven, heated to 275 degrees Fahrenheit, for 20 to 30 minutes, or until the skins crack. To remove loosened skins, rub the warm hazelnuts with a rough cloth or even between your hands.
