RECIPE BOX: ACORN CORNBREAD

I fell in love baking with acorn flour a handful or so years ago after a local dropped of a few bags she had harvested and processed (talk about a local food challenge).

Although I don’t quite have the time to do the entire process myself, I did find someone who could do it for me.    Acorn flour is easily incorporated into any baked goods or breads for that matter.  I find it gives a pleasant, nutty taste to whatever recipe you use it.

Acorns are an excellent source of fiber and Vitamin A. Acorn flour is often used for controlling blood sugar levels because it is low in fat, high in carbohydrates.

One of my favorite ways of using acorn flour is our family’s traditional cornbread recipe

For the holidays, you can purchase my very own acorn baking mixes at the Front Porch Farm Stand or online

In the city, we may not be able to grow fields of wheat but there are certainly plenty of oak trees.

    My son is allergic to chicken eggs but he can eat duck eggs. Our ducks just started laying a few weeks ago. He was pretty excited! It is so refreshing to see a recipe that recommends duck eggs! I will certainly try it.

    I just found your blog from the Nourishing Days blog. I am just beginning to read your many posts and I’m excited to see what you are doing. We have 5 acres in rural Manitoba, Canada and are working towards being more sustainable. I can wait to learn about everything that you have been working on! Thanks!

    I’m trying to look for a white acorn flour because it has less tannins. Do you know where I can get acorn flour in USA from USA not Korean?

    Thank you in advance

    Tried this today with my home made acorn flour. I used 4 tablespoons of acorn flour and it still tastes good, though more nutty. I think it might be a bit too sweet. The recipe above mentions vegetable oil but not how much to use… I used a 1 table spoon. Thanks!
