Review

"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."

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.

A nice little home-spun book on the subject. I appreciated the section on identification of various oaks that provide acorns. Lots of recipes none of which I've tried yet. Most of the information is available for free on the internet, but if you want it all gathered up for you in one place, this little book might work for you.

Odd layout interspersing descriptions of trees with various recipes....I find that very inconvenient, but the information is good once you find it.

Bought this book as a BD gift for my brother. He hasn't made anything yet but enjoyed reading it. If armageden comes it will be good to know there might still be a food supply!
