To get started, first, you’ll need to gather up your acorns. Acorns ripen in autumn, usually from late September to October, and naturally fall to the ground.
Since you gathered your acorns from the ground, they may be a bit dirty. So, once you get your acorns home, you’ll want to clean them up
Pour out your acorns into a colander and allow them to drain.
You can use whatever you have on hand for shelling your acorns, but a nutcracker, meat tenderizer or hammer work well.
to leach your acorns, place your shelled nuts into a bowl full of cool water.
