The Oaks

Human civilization is intertwined with the evolution of oak trees.  Oaks have provided food for humans and wildlife for countless centuries.  Through its acorn which is prolific, storable and nutritious it became one of humanities first staple crops.  This workshop will focus on the history, identification and edible qualities of the oaks.  We'll focus on the processing of acorns by shelling, leaching, drying, grinding, storage and utilization of acorn flour in a variety of recipes.  Participants will process, cook and sample several acorn based foods.   Pre-registration is required on-line by clicking the green registration tab by January 20.                                                                                                Workshop fee of $15 payable in advance.  Details on payment, location and workshop will be emailed to those registered prior to workshop.  For question email Patrick Adams at paadams@pa.gov
