Using Acorn Flour

I am wondering about "acorn flour". Has anyone ever used it? What have you used it in and did you grind it yourself? Would you mind sharing your methods and recipes?

i have made acorn bread before. It is very good. It has a nice grainy texture and an earthy flavor. We collect the acorns, process the tannin out, then roast them. I store them in gallon glass jars and grind when I need them. We also eat them just roasted as nuts.

Acorn Bread

1 c. acorn flour 3/4 c. wheat flour 1/4 c. carob flour(I used cocoa) 3 t. baking powder 1 t. sea salt

3 t. honey (can use molasses) 1 egg 1 c milk (I used 1/2 water) 3 T. oil

Mix all ingredients well. Pour into greased loaf pan and bake 250° 45 minutes. (Can double and bake in 13X9 pan.)

You can add extra liquid to this batter and make pancakes.

This sounds like something I'd like to try--we're allergic to wheat, so I work with different types of flours. How do you "process the tannin out?" Do you need to roast them?--We prefer our nuts raw. There's lots of acorn trees around here, so this may really help us out.

Is there anywhere that sells acorn flour without having to process it yourself? Specialty chain stores maybe?
