    Well if the acorns would stop getting so baked, maybe they wouldn’t be so apt to squash things.

    Acorns were a staple of most of California’s indians. The UC history guide on traditional uses for plants in california stated that a family would gather around 500lbs of acorns per year. White oaks were preferred, having less tannins, but all of the oaks could be used. The tannins would be leached out, the acorns ground. The meal would be boiled or shaped into bricks and baked as “bread”.

    @Nabuquduriuzhur

    Thank you. I had no idea that acorns were eaten by anything other than forest animals. It’s amazing the things one can learn from the oddest sources. (And I do mean that in the best sense.)

    You can write ‘real estate salesman with all lower case,’ but the word Realtor should be capitalized (FYI)

    It’s true… ’ The acorn doesn’t fall far from the tree ’.
