Our Hazelnut Butters

Hazelnut Butter has a sweet and rich taste and is a popular addition to entrees and side dishes.

The hazelnut tree is said to have spread to Italy, France, and Spain from Asia by way of ancient Greece. The ancient Greeks and Romans ate hazelnuts. Turkey is the world’s leading grower of hazelnuts. Other large producers include Italy, Spain, and Eastern Europe. In the United States, Oregon grows the majority of hazelnuts.

Shelled hazelnuts can be eaten whole, chopped, or ground. They can be added to cookies, cakes, and other desserts, or used in salads or to make a savory butter to flavor entrees and side dishes. Like many nuts, roasting hazelnut brings out their flavor. After roasting, hazelnuts should be rubbed in a cloth while still hot to remove their skins.

Hazelnut Butter is easily spreadable for sandwiches, snacks/appetizers and is an excellent addition to recipes. It is also a wonderful compliment to jams, chocolate and crackers.
