Hazel Nuts in a Stir-Fry

We have a local Hazel Tree which is not the victim of the Squirrels. It’s actually just within the grounds of a student accommodation enclosure. It’s on a bank so the nuts roll towards the footpath and the students, seemingly, have no idea what a Hazel Nut is unless it’s covered in chocolate.

So at this time of year it’s a win-win for us. We’ve tried a few bits and bobs with them. ( They are here ) This recipe worked really well. The lightly toasted Nuts take on the flavours of the Garlic and Ginger, while still having their characteristic sweetness.

If you’re awash with Hazel Nuts and are willing to spend a bit of time toasting and bashing them, this is well worth the effort!
