"This was the best breakfast I've had in a long time, even from a restaurant! If I were to start a wild foods greasy spoon, this would definitely be a featured menu item! I think I am going to gather acorns for many years to come just so I can make this dish."
"This extremely important, locally-produced book, Acorns and Eat 'Em..."
The recipe comes from Suellen Ocean's cookbook devoted exclusively to using acorns in preparing various foods, cheesecakes and enchiladas included. Everyone who tries the acorn cookies pronounces them Delicious!"
"I pulled out a cookbook called Acorns and Eat 'em, by Suellen Ocean. Suellen lives in the northern mountains of California, where good corns are plentiful. She is the sort of person who, if you called her an unregenerate hippie, might proudly nod assent."
WILLIAM BRYANT LOGAN, a certified arborist and award-winning writer, lives and gardens in Brooklyn, New York.

From the Author
Back in the late 1970's, I wanted to "live off the land." I looked around and except for dried blackberries; there was not much to eat. I began wondering what the Native Americans ate. I went to the library and brought home books but except for saying that acorns were leached in water, I did not know how to prepare them. I took a pillowcase and collected hundreds of acorns, came home and ground them up in an old-fashioned meat grinder (today I use a blender) then leached them in buckets. I had no idea how long they needed to leach but judging by the stomachaches, I knew I had not yet found that out. Through trial and error, I learned to correctly leach and cook with acorns. For several years, I saved all my ideas, tips and recipes, then compiled them, along with a field guide, and came up with the book, "Acorns and Eat'em." Acorns are a wonderful addition to anything you prepare; I have found them to be an excellent flavor enhancer. If you've got access to acorns, I suggest you give my recipes a try, just make sure that you leave enough acorns on the ground for wildlife, for some, their life depends on it.

I couldn't find my specific oak [Monterrey] tree in the eBook, but I will go back and update this review once I have completed the harvesting and eating section in practice.
Similarly to other reviewers it would be helpful if there was more detail in the preparing of the acorns before making them into delicious recipes for the "Eat'em" part.
I definitely appreciate the author taking the time to write their experience with processing and eating acorns - gold is all around us if we look.
This is what we made from the eBook recipe list...Acorn Hotcakes/Pancakes. The ground acorns were tasteless, so we did a great job in leeching the tannic acid. See the attached photo which shows are sorting process.
Food we have made with the acorn powder (see photo): Gravy, Muffins and Pancakes.
I also added a photo showing what 100 acorns looks like after going through the process of: Collecting, shelling, cracking, leeching and blending to get the powder mix.
Note: I read the Kindle eBook and the TOC link did not work for the version I reviewed.
