Harvesting and Eating Acorns

Eating acorns is a nutritious dietary practice, and they are tasty little nutmeats if processed appropriately to remove tannic acids.

Acorn weevils are the pest typically at fault for ruining a good acorn crop. However, you can test for infestations both in the field and once you gather your acorns to your processing location.
