  • Yeah, you can, you just gotta prepare them first. They're filled with a substance called tannic acid. Which is very bitter. You gotta shell them and boil them in batches of water to leech them out. Then you can eat them, and it can be pretty good. Has a little nutty flavor. But its recommenced to go for white oaks over red oaks. Furthermore, I found trying to shell acorns was a very long and tedious process. By the way, don't use a knife, use something more like a meat hammer.

    And also, you're probably gonna find some weevils.

  • I haven't, but native americans would regularly use them for consumption. They even were able to brew it into coffee, intrigued by that one.

    • Yep. You have to boil/steep them first though. Otherwise they are so bitter they will cause an upset stomach.

    • So I've heard. With the cost of coffee grounds being pretty ridiculous, I've thought about doing it lol

  • No but in parks and cemetery, i seen squirrels eating acorns.
