Get to know Acorn Flour

When I read William R. Forstchen's book about surviving an EMP, One Second After, I was very frustrated. The folks in the book who were struggling to survive, and have enough to eat, were ignoring abundance all around them!

Acorns. The woods of that area of NC, and mine here in SC, are usually half oak. And acorns are edible, with a little bit of work.

Suburban Foraging

(Cross-posted from Frugal Living Group) So you're on a budget and trying to make ends meet, and food is a big expense. You might have planted a fruit or nut tree and are waiting for it to start yielding, or you might be renting or not have room for a tree. Yet some of your neighbors have apple, pear, cherry, apricot, avocado, citrus, nut trees (or whatever) where most of the food falls to the ground and rots. How can you harvest that bounty?
