Acorns, the next side project

It's a big acorn year up here, apparently only happens about every 4 or 5 years, so I couldn't resist seeing if I could get some food out of them. We gathered up about 4 gallons or so, just from our property, and had them laying in the sun to dry, but now that it's raining, we've got them in baskets by the fire.

I read the book on the traditional method of leaching and grinding the flour, so more as that progresses.

native americans used to have to leach for along time to those acorns the get the bitterness out. I learned that in a native american herbal tour with David Crow. He is amazing.
