ReWild Eugene is hosting a that lets participants taste the foods that kept Native Oregonians alive for generations. The common acorn is bitter when raw but becomes a delicious and nutritious food when prepared correctly.
Acorns once made up a huge part of many indigenous peoples diet. They were (and are) an important source of fats, protein and carbohydrates and became the foundation of many cultures. You can enjoy acorns too.
In this workshop we will be delving into the world of this nutritious nut. We will talk about it’s historical uses, and learn modern ways of processing and using the acorn for food. There will be some goodies made from acorns on hand so we can have a taste as well.
The workshop is in two parts and the cost to attend is $10 in advance or $13 day of the class. Registration is available at www.rewild.com
