Hazelnuts may be delicious little morsels of nutty flavour, perfect for topping cakes, sprinkling on salads, and eating out of hand, but they can be kind of a pain to peel. Luckily, Justin Chapple has a super easy method for separating hazelnuts from their skins; you just need a cooling rack.
You can watch Justin demonstrate the neat little trick in the video above, but it’s super easy. Just roast your hazelnuts on a cooling rack set inside a rimmed baking sheet and, once they cool, just roll ’em around with your hands on the rack. The skins will flake right off, leaving behind delicious roasted hazelnuts.
