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!
