Q and A: Acorns and silver tarps as mulch — 1 Comment

    I found this site and it was interesting. Much of what Jennifer wrote about is also found on it. This year one of my oaks dropped the largest acorns I’ve seen in 15 years, and are they ever plentiful. I am going to have my grand daughter help me shell them, and show her how to remove the tannin. She is looking forward to sampling one, AFTER I remove the tannin. The best I can come to identifying what type of oak it is, is a member of the red oak family. From what I have found, the nuts will be very bitter before leaching.
    Anyway, I thought somebody might like to read this info, which also includes recipes for using the prepared nuts/meal.
