Understanding Acorn Flour

To make acorn flour, you need to first gather acorns and remove the shells. Next, grind the acorn kernels into a fine powder using a food processor or mortar and pestle. The acorn powder then needs to be leached to remove the tannins, which can be done by soaking it in water for several hours or boiling it. Once the tannins are removed, spread the acorn flour out on a baking sheet and let it dry completely. Finally, store your homemade acorn flour in an airtight container and use it in recipes as a gluten-free alternative to regular flour.
