Acorn coffee

Type of drinks Ingredients

Large selected acorns

Cooking method

Sort out the acorns, dry well in an oven heated to 90 degrees, making sure not to burn. After drying, remove the casing, fry, grind. Store in tightly closed glass containers.

Brew like regular ground coffee. Acorn coffee can be drunk simply black, with milk or sugar.

Note

Acorns should be harvested late in the fall, after the first frost, when they are fully ripe. Mature acorns are less bitter and contain more nutrients.

Acorns contain an arsenal of nutrients: starch, tannins, ß-carotene, essential oil, and all kinds of beneficial acids.

Drinks made with acorns taste almost the same as coffee.
