Barcelona nut

Grows in Europe especially in Spain, and in Asia and America, and have been eaten since the Bronze Age. Cultivated hazelnuts derive from the cob which grows wild in Britain. The filbert grows in Southern Europe. The shell is round, shiny and deep brown, with a slightly flat side. The nut inside is creamy coloured and quite dry. It is strongly flavoured and has the lowest fat content. Available whole, chopped or ground. Frequently used with chocolate in praline, but is good added to nut loaves and burgers for a savoury flavour.
