Toasting Hazelnuts 101

Here's me walking around aimlessly at our bulk food store in search of chopped hazelnuts

They don't have any.

Guess I'll have to figure out how to get the skins off and chop em myself.
I'll tell you too.

Toss your nuts on a baking sheet in a single layer. 
Resist the temptation to add oil or grease the sheet - its not needed.

Place in your oven at 275F for about 20-25 minutes.
You are going to want to toss them around every 5-7 minutes so they don't burn.
Remove and let cool slightly.
Place them into a tea towel and rub back and forth - this will help to remove the skins.

To chop them, place into a large Ziploc bag and pound with the side of a meat tenderizer.
Easy peasy and super tasty!
