Acorn Muffins

Took the kids on a hike this morning and collected a bunch of acorns.  Couldn't find a white oak- so I had to leach out the tannin in three boils.  It is a lot of work to shell these.  To me, it hardly seemed worth the effort- other than to learn that can be done.  There are lots of recipes for acorns online if you're interested.

That's awesome that you tried these out. From the pics the muffins look great! Too bad they didn't turn out taste wise. You just need to change the recipe is all. :)
