So even after all of that effort, our flour needed more processing! It was blended in the blender, ground in the food mill, and finally - pulverised with hammers (definitely the boys' favourite part!).
Finally, finally, this acorn flour was ready! It took hours of work and many steps, and here it is: one cup of fragrant, gorgeous flour. The boys are pros at baking bread, as we do it weekly, and I decided to also bake a batch of whole wheat bread using the same recipe, so we could do a taste test at snack time.
The bakers are working their magic . . .
And here, at last, is our acorn bread! It is the darker slice. It had a richer, more woodsy flavor; still mid enough to be enjoyable, and definitely with a denser crumb and chewier texture. This outdoor scavenging and baking adventure has officially been deemed a success!
