Photo Friday is my day to share my photographs of the moment and my thoughts associated with them. I hope you enjoy my photographs as much as I enjoy sharing them.
Awhile back, I had a hazelnut failure. I took this picture and have been meaning to post it for ages, to ask you…my readers…those that know more about cooking than I…for help. I found hazelnuts on sale in my area, such a rare find for me. Not just that they were on sale, but that I was able to find them. Research told me that to remove their skins they should be baked on a low heat, then rubbed in a napkin.
I baked some more.
I rubbed some more.
And those damn skins stayed on the hazelnuts. And the skins don’t taste that great.
I am horrified to admit I ended up disposing of them after many, many months. They had gone stale. And I didn’t know how to fix my dilemma.
