    I’ll see what I can do! The water is now totally clear but the acorns are still bitter. I am trying to figure out if somehow I bound the tannins in when I dried them. I have no clue. I will try the hot leach method and see how it goes. Thank you so much for your quick responses.

    Thanks for a great website. I am glad the Pittsburgh Tribune Review did the article on foraging. Too bad it’s too late in the year to collect white oak acorns this year, but in a ten minute walk in downtown Ambridge I can probably collect a bushel bu next fall. I can’t wait to try some recipes from here and the newspaper. The flatbread recipe sounds like something I would love as I eat nuts and homemade breads often. One question: Can I use my bread machine for any of this?

    Wanted to add a tip about where to get those gallon jars cheaper. Buy those huge jars of bad pickles sold in big supermarkets. The pickles are usually so poor quality as to be inedible but the whole jar only costs between $6 and $8 dollars depending on where you go.
