Q: I live in an area where acorns are abundant. I know they are edible, but they have a bitter taste. Still, I came across this: "In some human cultures, acorns once constituted a dietary staple, though they are now generally considered a minor food with the exception of Native American and Korean cultures." Do you have any info about using acorns, maybe preparing them in a way that takes out the bitterness? Sent by DH Editor: DH, yes — start here: • Seasonal Spotlight: Acorns There are instructions there for leaching the tannins out of the acorns and making them less bitter.
