Hazelnuts are a type of nut that comes from the hazel tree. They have a hard outer shell that needs to be removed before eating. Once the shell is removed, hazelnuts can be eaten raw or roasted, and they have a slightly sweet, nutty flavour.
Hazelnuts are a good source of healthy fats, protein, fibre, and various vitamins and minerals, including vitamin E, magnesium, and copper. They are also rich in antioxidants, which can help protect the body against damage from free radicals.
Hazelnuts are commonly used in baking and cooking, and they are a popular ingredient in desserts like chocolate-hazelnut spread (Nutella) and hazelnut praline. They can also be used to make hazelnut butter, which is similar to peanut butter but made from hazelnuts. Additionally, hazelnuts can be used in savoury dishes like salads and sauces.
