Summary

Acorns are one of the healthiest, tastiest and most versatile foods you can eat, and were once a mainstay of diets throughout the world. These nutritious nuts can be used as a fabulous gluten-free flour in breads and baked goods of all types, a fantastic base for sweet dishes or non-dairy milks, a grain-free hot cereal, a delicious coffee substitute or a protein in main dishes -- in addition to hundreds of other delicious uses.
In this comprehensive book, you'll learn the history and nutritional benefits of acorns, plus how to:

   Find acorns
   Easily sort out the good from the bad
   Process your acorns in a variety of ways
   Make acorn flour and meal
   Store acorns and acorn flour so they stay fresh
   Cook over 70 delicious sweet and savory recipes for acorn pancakes, donuts, drinks, soup, meatballs, fritters, stuffing, ice cream, cookies and much more.

Sure!

You can find it at Amazon (affiliate link) and at Barnes and Noble.  Libraries can also purchase it.  I know it's in the Minnesota library system, and if you request it your local library may order a copy.  :)

Thanks for asking!

I give this book 10 out of 10 acorns.

(I’m also amused that I’m giving acorns to an acorn book, but I’m quite easily amused.) My first instinct, when I want to learn about something, is to find a book. Since there are several oak trees on my minifarm and acorns are free food for the picking up, I decided that what I needed was an acorn book. This one provided what I was looking for! Thorough information on the different ways to leach tannins from them, as well as the pros and cons for each method with both red and white oak varieties. The real star here is the recipes, though! I love that there are so many gluten-free (or easily adapted to be gluten-free) recipes and that they derive from a number of cultures. Overall, very pleased. I bought the Kindle edition, but I think I’d like to get the physical book as well.
