After removing the shells and tannins from acorns fantastic things can happen. I am in the process of creating a total learning video for my channel at
The project last night involved mincing my sauteed, spiced acorns and combining them with other grains to form patties. The actual recipe is :
1 cup minced spiced acorns
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup self-rising cornmeal
1/3 cup whole wheat flour
Mix all ingredient together to form stiff paste. Allow mixture to rest for half an hour. Then, heat 1/4 cup of canola oil in skillet. I prefer a cast iron pan, myself. Form into 4 patties, and fry until crispy brown on each side. I used a cover for just a few minutes to create enough heat for the centers to fully bake as well.
Serve with catsup, or brown mushroom gravy. We had brown rice and garden salads to complete this healthy meal.
