FISHER: Hazelnut Chop, 4.52 oz
According to an ancient manuscript found in China, the hazelnut took its place among the five sacred nourishments God bestowed on human beings. In some cultures, hazelnuts were used to create medicines for a variety of ailments – from serious diseases to baldness! Also known as filberts (since they ripen about the time of St. Philibert Day in late August), hazelnuts are either enjoyed as a delicious snack, a confectionery ingredient or nut topping. Approximately 70% of today's hazelnuts are grown in Turkey, while almost all domestic hazelnuts are grown near Portland, Oregon.
