Indicazione Geografica Protetta (IGP) is a designation protected by the Italian government, similar to designations such as the PDO for Prosciutto di Parma or Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese. Agrimontana sources these IGP hazelnuts from the Piedmont region of Italy and roasts them to unlock theirrich, toasty flavor.
How to use
Agrimontana IGP Hazelnuts are ideal for both savory and sweet applications. Sprinkle over salads, roasted vegetables or pasta coated in browned butter. For dessert, add these hazelnuts to your favorite baked goods, like brownies, chocolate chip cookies and biscotti. Or try grinding these hazelnuts into a gluten-free flour for torta di nocciole (Italian hazelnut cake).
About the producer
Confectioner Azienda Agrimontana was founded in 1972 in Piedmont, Italy. Their flagship specialty, candied chestnuts, put them on the map and in the decades since, they have expanded their offerings to candied fruit and jams. But their commitment to exclusively sourcing the best fruit from Italy has remained. Agrimontana never adds preservatives, artificial flavors or dyes to their products, instead letting the high quality of the raw materials speak for themselves.
