where can i get HAZEL NUT paste?
i only know of nutella and also sweetened hazelnut spreads.. are there any that's just hazel nut pastes?
re: Sugar Jones
I was at Surfas last month and asked about hazelnut paste. They don't carry any unsweetened hazelnut paste. The only thing close is a hazelnut paste in a can with a lot of sugar that I believe was labeled "hazelnut puree." For a recipe I have, I was expecting to find something that looked like almond paste (i.e. in a tube) but that's not there.
If that stuff in a can is what I should have been looking for, please correct me anybody.
I, too, recommend your local health food store for hazelnut paste (aka filbert paste). I haven't been to Full O' Life in Burbank in several years but remember them having something of the like there. Might also try an Italian deli/market. My bro-in-law is Italian and LOVES anything hazelnut; he will put Nutella on just about anything.

Okay, I give up. How is this distinct from what you'd get if you bought a bag of hazelnuts at trader joe's and stuck them in the food processor for a couple minutes?
