"For the adventurer and one who has lots of acorns -- interesting soup to try. Acorns must be leached before using -- to leach acorns: fill a large pot one third full of shelled nuts and then cover them with an equal amount of water. Bring water to a boil and boil until waters turns dark brown. Pour off water and repeat the process several times until water is clear. You can also taste the acorns to see if they are done after the third or 4th exchange of water -- when there is no taste of bitterness your acorns are done -- this can take any where between 4 - 15 exchanges of water -- it all depends on the acorns."
