Acorn Time: Processing and Using Acorns as Food for the Bay Area Palate

Acorns once provided the cornerstone of Indian harvests in the fall and a major source of nutritious food year round. Now is the time for acorns to ripen, and now is the time to try using them in imaginative ways. Our first session will deal with how to leach and process acorns; participants will be given several kinds so we can compare the final product. Our second session a week later will be a party to sample what each person has done with their acorn meal. The instructor will provide recipe ideas, but those should only serve as a basis for experimentation. For example, acorns can be used in stuffings, muffins, cookies, breads, and much more. Two Sundays, November 11 and 18, 9am to 12pm.
