ISO ground and/or blanched hazelnuts

Hi folks!

Hoping you give me a hand as I look for ground and/or blanched hazelnuts downtown or in east york. Any tips would be appreciated.

  1. Try DIY for blanching and grinding:

    Ground nuts go stale very quickly, so pre-ground is pretty much a recipe for disappointment. No clue about how much you need or their use but shelled hazel nuts from Costco or Bulk Barn would likely do the trick.

      Thanks for the tip! I didn't know it was so easy.

    2. Domino's, the bulk store in the back corner of St Lawrence Market, sells blanched and (I think) ground hazelnuts as well. It's generally a great source of bulk goods.

          East of Yonge, I don't know if you have a Costco membership in East York, but I buy the sliced almonds in a large bag and I grind them myself to make macarons, a bit of a pain, but cheaper. The almonds are creamy beige in color, not the brown ones.
