Alicia could you link to where we can buy the print copy?
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. :)
(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.
Heroic work plunger man. Please allow me to introduce you to this tiny ad:
