wild food

These acorn cakes were good! Thanks to our instructor Rob Remedi, and to the Malibu Creek Docents for providing continuing education.

  1. In school we learned that indigenous peoples of California ate acorns, but never learned how. This is really a good lesson on food in a world without today’s conveniences, and a good reminder about surviving. While I don’t eat acorns, I do use oak galls for ink . . .

    1. Processing acorns always sounded like a huge amount of work, but it’s actually pretty quick and easy once the acorns are dried. I have gall ink, but I have never made it. Did you make yours?

      1. Interesting to know it was quick to process the acorns. And, yes, I do make my own iron gall ink. I use quill pens, too; you learn a lot when you take on what once was as a daily thing as your own daily thing!
