Mighty Wild

Learning to cook with acorns

Food has always been a passion of mine, which is why I left a career in real estate development to enroll in the California Culinary Academy several years ago. My new skill set came in handy this past year as Mimi and I made anything and everything we could think of from acorns - bread, cookies, pasta, pancakes, waffles, muffins and much more. It was quite a culinary adventure full of successes and failures that eventually led us to our delicious acorn crackers!

But before we could explore all the recipe possibilities, we had to figure out how to make acorn flour. There's quite a bit of information out there on how to process acorns. We sifted through the blogs of foragers and scholarly articles to finally come up with our own process we feel preserves the flavor and integrity of our acorns.

Finally after months of R&D and flavor testing we're thrilled to bring you our first acorn products: 1) original, 2) rosemary & caramelized onion, and 3) spicy chipotle acorn crackers. Happy snacking!

A Mighty journey

We want to start our first blog post off by saying thank you to all those who have supported and believed in Mighty Wild from its inception. It’s been an incredible journey to get to where we are today – from months of R&D and expeditions to find the best acorns to completing all of the little details needed to launch a food product. Mighty Wild is the realization of our lifelong dream to start a mission-driven food company. And we couldn't be more proud to be working with the Arbor Day Foundation to plant trees in your communities as our way of giving back.

Oak trees have always been a wonderful presence in our lives. We climbed their branches as children and enjoyed their shade during family picnics. We want these majestic trees to be around for our children and generations to come, so we've combined two loves, food and trees.

We are so excited to launch our Kickstarter project and are tremendously grateful for all the love and support! Let the foodie adventure begin!

Founders & Sisters,

Aline Copp & Mimi Brown
