The Really WILD Food Guide

Using acorns as food...


Acorns are edible     Beef with Acorns & Redcurrant Sauce

Yes acorns are edible, provided they are suitably prepared. They can be used to make bread-type food, as a thickener, and in other dishes like the one shown here.

Stir-fried beef [it could just as easily have been venison], with an acorn and redcurrant sauce. Whole acorns [previously leached and dried, then re-hydrated] were used rather than the mush.

See, also, the acorn pan-bread on recipe page 10.

For your safety. Do not consume wild plants if you have
ANY medical condition, during pregnancy, or give to minors.
