I have finally finished the last of the acorns. These were dried and put in the deep freeze before processing. I dried them for about 6 hours in the oven at 120 degrees. They turned a dark chocolate brown and most were hard and a few kind of rubbery. I used my Corona grain mill to grind them up and instead of using the juice can leaching I used an electric drip coffee pot. I put the ground acorns into a coffee filter in the machines basket and ran about 4 full pots of water through to leach out the tannins. It worked great. I'll post photos of the process tomorrow. The computer and all cameras are back up and running.
