If you’re from the northern hemisphere, your ancient ancestors relied upon acorns as a major part of their diet for hundreds, if not thousands, of years.

Acorns are an abundant food source in the urban centers of the Southwest as well as the wild lands. A nutritious and delicious food source, they can be integrated into a modern diet.

In this class, you’ll learn a detailed approach to gathering, processing, and cooking with acorns. Each acorn can be handled differently, and there are abundant ways to prepare them. Featuring a slideshow presentation.
