Much love to current and new Cooperative Friends who started 2017 with wonderful acorn food based gatherings, dinners, birthdays and breakfasts – and are working to create more community education opportunities and resources… Recipes to follow (soon)!
Belated and BIG thanks to acorn aficionado Myles Greene for this expert and enthusiastic acorn processing workshop at the 2017 NOFA Winter Conference in January:
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.
