Did you know?
A filbert is a type of hazelnut, which comes from the hazel tree. History of this nut dates back to approximately 7000 BC, in an area near what is now known as Scotland. In contemporary times, hazelnuts are produced in commercial quantities in Oregon and Washington states in the U.S. and in Turkey, Italy, Greece, the country Georgia, and the Catalonia region of Spain.
Filberts have an annual harvest, in autumn. The nuts drop from trees on their own, rather than being taken down by mechanical equipment, for optimal freshness. Machines sweep through hazel tree orchards several times a year to collect this natural bounty.
A common ingredient in confections such as pralines and chocolate truffles, filberts also are used to flavor liqueurs, coffees and oils.
