Hazelnuts grow within protective husks, in clusters on hazelnut trees. When they ripen, the hazelnuts drop from the husks onto the ground, where they can be harvested. Hazelnuts are available both in-shell and shelled. These shelled raw hazelnuts have a buttery texture and nutty flavour and can be used in both sweet and savoury dishes, roasted, used to prepare a dairy free nut mylk, ground into a gluten free flour or blended into a nut spread. Hazelnuts may be most well known for being an ingredient in chocolate spreads.
