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.
