How to Blanch Hazelnuts?

Answer

Before using Hazelnuts in a recipe they must be blanched, or skinned. The easiest way I have found to blanch hazelnuts is to add 2 tablespoons of baking soda to about 2 quarts of water, then bring it to a boil. Add the nuts and allow to parboil for about 3 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water to cool, after which simply rubbing the nuts with a dry towel will cause the skins to fall off easily.
