Hazelnuts belong to the hazel family. Hazelnuts grow on hazelnut bushes found in deciduous forests from Europe to Western Asia. The harvest takes place between September and October. Hazelnuts are mainly exported from the USA, Turkey, Spain and Italy. There are two different forms. The longish Lambertsn├╝sse are superior in taste to the roundish Zellern├╝sse. Hazelnuts can be stored dry, airy and cool for up to one year. Hazelnuts without shell can only be kept for 6-9 months. At room temperature, they turn rancid easily. This is why these nuts should also be kept cool, airy and dry. Since hazelnuts contain up to 60% fat and 14% protein, they are very rich in calories. Hazelnuts contain vitamins B1, B2 and E. They are also rich in calcium and potassium. Hazelnuts are ripe when their skin is brown. The dark brown skins surrounding the hazelnuts can also be eaten. Hazelnuts can be ground, planed or chopped and are mainly used for Christmas baking. But hazelnuts also taste very good in cakes or fruit salads.
