25: After the acorns have finished cooking they look a lot like a custard. This custard is dropped into a bucket of cold water to make biscuits.

26: The biscuits are scooped out and loaded into a bowl. Then it's time to eat!! Then there's the acorn chips that are bits of acorn mush that have cooked to the rocks. They are very tasty.

27: They are wonderful to eat with tri-tip and peppers or beans and tortillas.
