Corylus Farms Hazelnut Oil is cold pressed from locally grown hazelnuts. Following the traditional method used in France and Italy, the kernels are gently roasted to develop a rich flavor profile and then pressed to produce the beautiful golden oil. The oil is bottled after allowing time for a small amount of solids to settle. No further processing is required.
Try it drizzled on boiled or roasted potatoes, brushed on roasted vegetables, or dripped into pasta or rice. Dress salads with hazelnut oil vinaigrette and bring even more flavor to roasted and grilled meats with a finishing dash of oil. And aioli made with it is indescribably delicious. For bread, try our recipe for Ultimate Dipping Oil below. Check out our recipe page for even more delicious suggestions.
