A lot of prepping involves food storage and learning how to hunt, but especially gardening and small-scale farming. I grew up in a rural area and am familiar with both hunting and farming, but am interested in other food sources often overlooked. Acorns seem to fall in that category and if you have a lot of oak trees they could be a game changer in hard times.
Just this week, I picked enough wild grapes to make two batches of jelly. They are very tart with an intense grape flavor, but very high in pectin. So you need to add sugar but nothing else. I couldn't eat them, but my 2 year-old granddaughter popped them in her mouth like candy.
It takes a lot of work to make acorns edible. You have to boil them several times to remove the tannin. "Acorns are best ate indirectly in the form of pork." Patricia Rupp in Red Oaks and Black Birches.
