Filberts are an all-purpose nut, also known as the hazelnut. Its slightly bitter flavor makes the hazelnut a great ingredient in ice cream, cookies, cakes, and nut mixes. Native to Turkey and Oregon, the hazelnut also holds high nutritional value. It is loaded with vitamins and minerals essential to a healthy lifestyle. Alone, or added to a dessert, the hazelnut’s sweet taste and extra crunch make it a delicious treat!
