This assignment takes a written story with lots of information and creates a list in order to minimize reading time, organize clearly, and get information across quickly.

The original story I chose is from the Lifehacker.

Before List

“If you’re making Nutella or other recipes that require toasted and peeled hazelnuts it can be a pain to remove the papery skins. To make the skins easier to remove boil the hazelnuts in water with three tablespoons of baking soda.

Culinary weblog My Baking Addiction found this tip from an old clip of Julia Child’s cooking show with guest Alice Medrich. After boiling the hazelnuts in the water for three minutes the water will become black. Drain the hazelnuts and rinse with cold water which should make the skins slip off easily.

The conventional method of removing hazelnut skins is to roast them for 15 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit and then rub the skins off with a dampened kitchen towel. The author at My Baking Addiction tried both methods and the boiling technique ended up making the skins much easier to remove.”

After List

If you’re making Nutella or other recipes that require toasted and peeled hazelnuts it can be a pain to remove the papery skins. To make the skins easier to remove, follow these simple steps:

(Kudos to culinary weblog My Baking Addiction who found this tip from an old clip of Julia Child’s cooking show with guest Alice Medrich.)

      1. Boil the hazelnuts in water with three tablespoons of baking soda
      2. Once water becomes black (approx. 3 minutes), drain hazelnuts and rinse
      3. Slip the skins off and proceed with your skinless hazelnuts

If you don’t have baking soda available, try this method instead:

      1. Roast for 15 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit
      2. Rub skins off with damp kitchen towel
