Title: Sweet Acorns (Chene a gland doux)
Post by: shaneatwell on July 23, 2019, 04:34:24 PM
This is more of a curiousity, but i've been looking for the sweetest oak acorns for a while. Something edible out of hand. I now have Q. macrocarpa, gambelli, suber, lobata, emoryi, garryana. I also have probable ballota, but i'd like to get some confirmed acorns of that one.

Searching french language sites (w/ terms like "chene gland doux" or "chene gland comestible") I've read that in Algeria, Tunisia and Turkey the acorns are sold fresh or roasted. Can anyone confirm this and comment on taste?
