Lješnjaci Yes or No?

Greetings from Zagreb.

It’s Lješnjaci season. Hazelnuts. Do you like hazelnuts? I’ve never seen them sold like this in the USA but they grow and are harvested here in Croatia. These lješnjaci are out of the shell and sold in net bags. .

Corylus avellana. Hazelnuts are sweet with characteristic slight notes of musty and earthy. One of the significant flavor mixtures found in hazelnuts is fiber tone. Filbertone is a naturally occurring ketone found in hazelnut oil. It has a roasted, marbled, sweet, and long-lasting character”

  1. Yes on hazelnuts. I believe we used to call them “filberts” in this country but now I think hazelnuts is used. I love baking with them.

  2. Love Hazelnuts, l never picked them, but have spent hours cleaning them from the prickly shell.

Thanks for your visit. It's always good to hear you stopped by.
