Acorns were an important food for Native American people throughout California.
In Southern California, acorn remains a favorite traditional food.
Ever wonder how an acorn is transformed from a bitter-tasting nut filled with tannic acid into a nutritious food?
Come to Dorothy Ramon Learning Center's Second Saturday Sidewalk Storytelling Program from 1 to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 14, corner of Hays Street and San Gorgonio Ave., and find out.
The Madrigal Family will take us step-by-step through traditional acorn processing and preparation.
And you'll get to taste the results.
Free family fun. Crafts for kids.
