How to Roast, Toast and Grind Nuts


To Roast Hazelnuts

  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Remove the shells of the nuts if this has not already been done, and arrange the shelled nuts in a single layer on a baking sheet.
  3. Roast until the nuts begin to turn a golden brown, about 5 to 10 minutes.

To Toast

  1. Spread shelled nuts in a single layer in an ungreased pan.
  2. Bake at 350 degrees F, stirring and checking until they are done. They are toasted when lightly browned.

Bake almonds, pecans and walnuts for 7 to 12 minutes.

Bake pine nuts for 5 to 7 minutes.

Toasted Almonds

  1. Spread shelled almonds in an ungreased baking pan.
  2. Place in 350 degrees F oven and bake 5 to 10 minutes or until almonds are light brown, stirring once or twice to ensure even browning. Note that almonds will continue to brown slightly after removing from oven.

To Grind

  1. Place 1/2 cup shelled nuts at a time in the bowl of a food processor or blender. Process them in short pulses just until ground. If you grind them longer, you will end up with nut butter (which works well with peanuts).
