    the processing information in this article is essentially incorrect and hugely inefficient. Boiling acorn is a waste of energy. They will also not leach adequately in the shell in a stream for only 2 days.

    Need to highlight it more. Most ACORNS are TOXIC. Make sure you know what you are doing to remove the toxins.

    Also the claim about vitamin B12 is wrong unless there are bugs in them. B12 is not found in plant foods

      I was curious about the B12 claim for the same reason Ian mentions. I didn’t know it was in plants.

    • Robin Morrill says:

      you need to research that because you are absolutely incorrect. There is b12 in many plant based nuts and even maple syrup. Almonds, pumpkin seeds all kinds of things.

    When I was a kid in California’s Central Valley, there was a huge Mission Oak in our yard. I would collect acorns and shell them. I would leave the shelled and chopped acorns in the sun for a while . They tasted okay after that.
