@WillaKissing 😆 Made from acorns... you're a funny guy.

@UnderLockDown They eat the heck out of them on my tree farm, and I eat the heck out of the acorn eaters. So, it holds Validity! LOL

Nope...but on your other post, I mentioned seeing a show on television that demonstrated removing the tannins by placing crushed acorns in a bag, and immersing them in a stream of running water overnight, and then cooking them as a cereal the following morning. The men who ate the cereal said it tasted "nutty".
@MoonlightLullaby There are 2 kinds, one is edible raw with no prep. White oaks, the leaves have rounded lobes.

@UnderLockDown Ah, that's interesting. I've never seen them without the rounded lobes that I know of. I'll be doing some investigating around my trees now 🧐
@MoonlightLullaby Red oaks have pointed lobes, we have tons of them here! We have a city nearby called Thousand Oaks, it's not a misnomer.😆

@Matt85 Would you try it?

@UnderLockDown I'll try anything once.

Yes. I gathered acorns when I was 9 years old and shelled them. Then boiled them in several changes water with a lot of salt. Drained them and split in half and put on a cookie sheet and roasted them in the oven. I’ve also eaten large acorns from cork oak trees in Morocco. They have to be boiled quite a while. Ate them for a snack, they were really dry & mealy texture.
@cherokeepatti If prices keep rising, I'm switching acorn flour. It still makes sourdough, and it's free.

@UnderLockDown I removed the tannins and then roasted them like nuts. I was hungry for salted peanuts.

Just make sure you wash and prepare them very well. The tannins are poisonous if the acorns are eaten raw.

@Jackaloftheazuresand they have to be boiled in several changes of heavily salted water to remove the tannins to make them edible.

Well thank you for best comment!
@UnderLockDown you did say a-corn obviously corn passes
@Mistakesmakeus Obviously.😄
Once. Around the 3rd or 4th grade, we were studying some of the local native American tribes in our area. And we had to prepare an acorn mash dish. It wasn't bad.
