nut time again

Post by amybyrd21 on Fri Oct 02, 2009 4:59 am

It is time to harvest nuts. We have black walnut, chestnuts, hickory nuts, and acorns. What else do I need to look for while going thru the woods around here this time of year?

Something to make the acorns palatable. Suspect

Seriously though, check for persimmons, and paw paws, they should be close to being ready.

I've heard that if you leech the acorns it will take out the bitterness. I've never tried it though. We usually just let the squirrels get ours. We have a couple of pecan trees on our property, but they haven't started producing yet.

I know this is an old thread, but figured I'd comment anyway.

For your oaks, the members of the red oak subgroup are more bitter than those in the white. It has to do w/the amount of tannin in the acorn.

To get rid of the bitterness you need to put them in warm water and let them sit for 1 hour-don't boil! Change the water and repeat until they're no longer bitter.

B4 you get started w/preparing your acorns, put them in water. If any of them float, take them out. They have bugs in them.

Good hunting this year, locally the mast crop looks poor. Oaks were hit hard by the drought.
