Herbal Tradition & Folklaw

Hazelnuts would have provided a plentiful and easily stored source of protein, often being ground up and mixed with flour to make nourishing bread. Cultivated hazelnuts called filberts take their name from St Philibert’s Day on 20 August, the date by which hazelnuts were supposed to start ripening. They are also known as cobut or filbert instead of hazelnut trees.

Cheaper oils are often added to this expensive oil and it is not always obvious when buying or from the label.
