    I can't cook. I mean ... I can only cook well enough 'not-to-die'

    So on rare occasion that I DO cook something AND enjoy it, I'm kind of proud!

    I also enjoy learning about what I can forage. Processing acorns is a labor of love, But acorns are actually one of the healthiest nuts around! Read up on how to collect and process.

    So, I tried acorn bread ... it is like corn bread but substituting acorn flour for con flour. Eggs courtesy of my lovely hens!

    The picture doesn't look as good as a picture you might find on a recipe sit, but the results taste great with little butter and honey! I added the recipe right onto the picture, enjoy!

    Haven't tried it, but since acorn flour doesn't rise on its own, I understand that they make good Johnny cakes even without the wheat flour

    Yes! Lol!
    And speaking of that, it was actually the first year I started growing the actual oak trees!
    And yes, I was walking around the woods picking up acorns and putting 'em in a bag.
    *me looking crazy collecting acorns* Lol.
