There are thousands of wonderful edible wild plants where I live here in Indiana but wild sources of starches can be a bit tricky to come by. Proteins, fruits, and vegetables are easy to find but the starches, not so much. Acorns can help fill the gap. If you are interested in learning about the process, I recently had an article published in the Nov/Dec issue of GRIT magazine on harvesting Acorns for food that covers this process in detail. The digital version is now available via the link is below. I’d love to hear your feedback and your own experiences using this amazing and versatile nut!
