Making acorn flour

My pals Eric and Julia of Ramshackle Solid made acorn flour this year, and in their blog they showed how they did it.

Our favorite use is acorn pancakes. Just mix the acorn flour 1/2 and 1/2 with wheat or other flour from your favorite recipe. I love the acorn flavor – slightly nutty, very hearty. If you make your own, let us know how it went.

I'm going over there uninvited for pancakes.
