Hazelnuts are part of the Betulaceae family. The fruits of this shrub were very appreciated by the men of prehistory. They were therefore known to the ancients; for the Greeks it was the "pontic nut" while the Latin derived its name from "corylus" by analogy to the kind cap partially surrounding its fruit.

Hazelnut trees called "corylus cornuta" are bushy and deciduous shrubs scarcely a few meters high that grow in damp woods and thickets. The fruits formerly called coudres, then hazelnuts, ripen at the end of summer. The fruits are enveloped in a greenish, pubescent seed, called involucre, which is prolonged in the form of a curved beak.

The art of picking hazelnuts is also the art of removing them just in time from the appetite of squirrels and chipmunks who know better than humans choose the most favorable moment. The fruits can be kept for a long time in their hull, but it is better to consume the almonds as soon as they are scalded.

The nutraceutical benefits of hazelnuts are well known, with their anti-inflammatory properties and saturated fats.

Little sweetness, great pleasure, these are the fruits that gave their name to a beautiful island of Charlevoix, the island of Coudres!
