Acorn History, Harvesting, and Preparation

Acorns have been consumed in the Northeastern U.S. for centuries, well before the colonization of Europeans. Join Adam Haritan from learnyourland.com and foragingpittsburgh.com for a program that will cover acorn gathering tips (how to separate the good from the bad), differences between red and white oak groups (important for processing), several leaching methods, drying and storing methods, nutritional benefits, and more!   Program begins at the Fire Tower Parking Lot.
