Processing Acorns

Processing acorns! Everyone does it a little bit different, and for me it seems like every year I’m somewhere different and do it in a little bit different way. This year I was in north central Texas, and luckily had myself some great help. You’ll follow from picking them up, to shelling them in my handy sheller, to letting them dry so that the papery sheaths can be removed, to grinding them up in my hand crank/hand powered blender, to leaching them with cold water to remove the tannic acid.

  1. Excellent! I will be trying this, this year. We have so many acorns in the Midwest. Time to put them to good use!

  2. And to think that I just let the squirrels have all of them! I didn’t know until now that acorns are good. I should give these recipes a try when I start baking again this weekend with my daughter. Thanks very much for the info.
