i have found like with bread, longer is much better, you get deeper richer flavors. and probably more nutrition. i do the same process above except i don't boil. or even heat. but soak,drain,soak,drain,until the water is clear and the acorn is sweet and tasteful.
i would much rather have a device that hulled acorns of any size.
