Hazelnuts are sometimes required "bare-skinned" in recipes. Removing the papery skins is easy to do; this articles explains just how.
How to Remove Hazelnut Skins
Preheat the oven to 180ºC/350ºF.
Place the hazelnuts on a tray. Remove any shell pieces or foreign material.
Put the tray into the oven and toast the hazelnuts for 5–10 minutes.
Remove from the heat and place in a clean tea towel.
Rub the hazelnuts in the tea towel and the skins will come off easily.
