My family loves deserts with hazelnuts...my mother got us addicted. She passed away recently so my wife and I have taken over the recipes and carried on. Most of her recipes tell us to roast the nuts for 10 minutes, remove the skins, then chop them up. I guess the skins are bitter.
Here's the problem: how do you remove the skins? I don't ever remember seeing my mom do it (no idea how I missed that). My wife heard about putting them in a kitchen towel and rolling them around, so that's what we're doing. But it takes forever and isn't very effective. Any better ideas?
