I just picked up some for the first time today- got any ideas for what types of dishes to use them in? do they go best in sweet things... or pates, sauces and spicy things?
would I use them in place of almonds, macs or cashews?

Yum I love hazelnuts go great mixed together with dates and raw carob, excellent in smoothies and you could grind them to make hazel nut butter, chop them up in raw puddings or ice creams.
Can you tell I have a sweet tooth LOL You can also use them in pie crusts.

oh, great! I will try something cookie-ish this time... sounds very good!
thanks rawstrawberry!!! :)
btw, the only time I've had hazelnuts is in the very distant SAD past in chocolates, ice cream and coffee- so I can't imagine the flavor w/ non-dessert dishes... :p ?
anyone use them for anything other than sweets? no, bad idea? :confused: just checking!!! :rolleyes:
hazelnut milk! yes!

You did not say which you got. Although they are of the same family, they are two different nuts. Go to Google and check it out. One of the encyclopedias listed gives all the details :)
