does anyone have a tip for peeling hazelnuts? the one time i did it it was an hours long task for three people (ok, i exaggerate) and i never wanted to do it again. but i yearn for the taste

I don't peel them for this recipe, but after you roast them if you roll them around and rub them in a clean dish towel it takes the husks off.
