Acorns: Gods gift to the world

For centuries, the simple acorn has fed hungry people.

I got 5 pounds of acorns from a friends tree. Cracked about half, leached in water, then roughly ground them and lay them out to dry on a cookie sheet.





From here I will let my oldest grand son grind it into flour. First in the blender and then in the grain grinder.




Then we will make acorn bread.

Wow, I never realized (as you can tell, I'm very new to country living) that acorns could be used for anything other than to feed squirrels...until I read your blog. Congrats on what you are doing and for making me aware of how things can (and should) be used for many, many things.....fischbutt
