I have a question about the ingredient "1/4 cup hazelnuts" on the recipe "Arugula Pesto" from cristinasciarra. Do you peel the hazelnuts before or after you toast them?

After toasting them -- the toasting helps loosen the skins.

One good way to remove the skins is to rub the toasted nuts around in a sieve. And hold the sieve over the sink to contain the mess!

or, try puting them in a tupperware container and shaking vigorously for about a minute. if the nuts are well toasted, the skins will just fall off. it works every time.
