NUTS IN SHELL FOR CHRISTMAS

Most of our cobnuts are de-husked and then dried, so they can be enjoyed over a longer period than fresh cobnuts. These dried nuts will be available in major supermarkets in time for Christmas. We have discovered that (with the exception of Christmas) our customers are not too keen on shelling the nuts themselves, so Mr Dain has designed and developed a nut cracking and shelling machine.

Once the shells are removed, the nut kernels can be pressed for Cobnut Oil, which has proved to be a delightful new product. We believe that we have facilitated the resurgence of a tradition which was common in mediaeval times but has lapsed over recent generations. Also known as hazelnuts or philberts (as mentioned by Shakespeare in 'The Tempest') cobnuts were part of the staple diet of many of our ancestors, and as recently as the 1800s were pressed for oil. Healthy, delicious and produced from one of the most ancient natural foods in the UK, Cobnut Oil is back !

Watch out for the nuts dipped in chocolate, which we hope to offer ready for Christmas.
