The thread about acorns and whether or not they are poisonous got me thinking... I have baked with acorn flour that I made myself, and I'm wondering if you guys had any other interesting ingredients and recipes to make with them. So here's mine... what's yours? Last fall, we moved into this new house with TONS of acorns all over the place. The girls down the street, the elder being my age, and I quickly became friends. Their mother is Indian and they do lots of interesting ethnic things. Our project was acorn bread. We collected all the acorns we could find, smashed them open to get the nuts, and boiled them. That took out the toxins. The water, with the 'toxins' in it, actually has medicinal properties that can soothe bug bites, poison ivy, and rashes (I have a little jar of it left). We then dried the acorn nuts, ground them into flour, and backed bread and muffins. They were delicious.
