Ripe acorns, (white oak is sweeter than black or red)
Remove the cups and shells
I prefer to boil them 2-3 hours, changing the water when it becomes brown, then roast 350 degrees for approx. 1 hour (taste test).
When they have cooled, grind in a food processor or as back in the old days chop, pound, and roll with a rolling pin. Grind as fine as you can.
One book suggests after the first grinding dry the flour in the oven again for 1/2 hour. I don't do this, but if the flour is still moist it would be a good idea. Also, you have the option of combining the acorn flour with other flours.
