Hazelnut milk – Dave Hamilton

Hazelnut milk

If you’ve been lucky enough to grow or forage an abundance of hazelnuts then this is a great way to use them up. It also makes a delicious alternative to cows milk.

Method – makes around a pint

Shell the hazelnuts and half fill a breakfast bowl with them.

Top the bowl up with water and soak overnight

Discard the water and place the soft hazelnuts in a blender

Top up with around a pint of water (approx 550mls)

Blend the mixture

Pass it through a sieve or muslin bag and squeeze

Bottle and refrigerate

You’ll be left with the husks of the nuts which I found could be used as a spread when mixed with a little vegetable oil
