Dispelling Myths of the Acorn: From Tree to Table
Ever think to yourself, “I wish I could eat all those acorns littered on the ground?” Learn about North America’s most under-utilized wild food, how and when to harvest, and most importantly, how to process the acorn in this workshop. This workshop will be a combination of introductory lecture and hands-on: We will utilize ancestral and modern methods to process acorns.
