OK – it is not coffee but it is a nice drink – sometimes nicer than regular coffee !
When I bring the Acorns home, I don’t always have time to sit and shell them right away so I need to store them. The problem with this is that there is a certain little moth that lays its eggs inside the Acorns and if I wait too long, the larva will have eaten most of the nutmeat. In order to kill these eggs, I spread my acorns on cookie sheets and roast them in the oven at 325° for ½ hour (longer if they’re green). Now I can store them as long as I need to before processing them any further.
