Soba-style Acorn Noodles From the Back of the Book:
Everywhere there are oak trees, at one time or another people ate acorn. For many indigenous people across North America and the world, acorn was a staple food around which their entire diet was based. Today much of that important food history has been forgotten and many people now believe this once sacred food to be inedible. This book aims to change that!  

Acorn is a delicious, nutritious and extremely versatile food that is high in protein, complex carbs, healthy fats, and it’s gluten-free! While it does take a little work to prepare, the end result is absolutely worth it.  

Acorn Pumpkin-Spice CheesecakeThe step-by-step instructions on gathering and preparing acorn will show you just how quick and easy it can be to make acorn flour in your own kitchen with no special equipment, and our "Easy-leach Cold Process" method of tannin removal, done on your kitchen counter while you are asleep and at work, will have you ready to prepare your own acorn dishes in no time.

This book contains 25 of our favorite acorn recipes. From breakfast cereal and muffins to chicken fingers and falafel to banana bread and cheesecake, acorn will take your cooking, baking and eating to a whole new level of delicious.
