Preparation: shell all the hazelnuts well, preheat the oven to 170 ° C, with a large baking pan inside. Then remove the pan and place the hazelnuts on it, without overlapping them. Bake and lower to 90 ° C, letting the hazelnuts cook for about 15 minutes and turning with a wooden spoon from time to time.

Then turn off the oven and let them cool inside for another 15 minutes. Then remove the pan from the oven and, when the hazelnuts are completely cold, remove the skin with the help of a small knife or by beating them together and rubbing them inside a cloth.
