I've got the kids outside harvesting acorns. Needless to say, we have buckets full. I now that you need to shell, blanch then roast them but how long do they keep after roasting and before shelling? If they can last a long time without prepping them, I'll keep most in buckets and shell/prep as needed.

Thanks.

Update: What a PITA. Shelling the acorns took forever. Also, I've got red oak acorns (which apparently has more tannins) so its taking a very long time to leech the tannin out. I've been tasting them after each boil and they tasting better. After this time, I should be ready to bake them so I'll let you know how they turn out. Seeing as I have 10 oak trees in my yard, if this works it should be worth it.

I just might try that this fall. I have several large white oaks.
