Ingredients

  • Acorns - as many as you may need.
  • Maple syrup (home made preferred, just cause it tastes better) as much as you like

Directions

First you need to process the acorns by shelling them, pounding into a powder, then rinsing them several times till all the tannic acid comes out. I use one leg of a pair of panty hose to put the powdered acorns in, then run the sink and soak and squeeze , change water, soak and squeeze, till the color of the water runs clear.

I then put some acorn mush in a bowl, add about 3 tablespoons of water, and put in the micro-wave for about 3 minutes, then add one tablespoon of maple syrup.

Note: its pretty good. makes a great breakfast. if cooking outdoors in the wilderness you will have to modify the way you cook it
