I have wanted to make some acorn flour for a couple years but had either missed the season or didn't have time when they acorns were falling, however this year I kept track and was able to try my hand at making some acorn flour finally.

After I collected all my acorns, I gave them a quick rinse in a large colander, make sure to keep your colander out and around, you will be needing it throughout the process.
