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, presenter John Slattery will share an overview of the history of acorn consumption, nutrition of acorns, and a detailed approach to gathering, processing acorns for consumption.
Acorns are an abundant and nearly entirely overlooked food source within the Phoenix Valley.
