"If truth be told, the real staff of life for mankind as a whole has probably been neither wheat nor rice, but instead the wild acorns from the oak trees that grow in America, Europe, Asia and Africa."

- "The Wordsworth Guide to Edible Plants & Animals" by A.D. Livingston & Helen Livingston

The acorn, utilized as a food source for upwards to 10,000 years, is now all but forgotten when we modern humans walk over them on the city sidewalks, mow over them in our yards or even worse...throw them away in plastic trash bags to sit out front waiting to be picked up with the rest of your weekly "yard waste". The acorn is food for such a vast expanse of species, humans certainly being one of them. This workshop will discuss some of the history of the acorn as a food source, nutritional value of the acorn, techniques that were employed by indigenous peoples to process acorns into food, traditional acorn dishes and how to process them at home using your own hands and tools. There will be freshly baked maple acorn muffins to try at the event as well! Space is limited to 15 for this special event.
