Acorns, who would have thought they were so versatile?

Acorns – who would have thought that there were so many things to do with one?
When it comes to Acorns so many of us get so aggravated with them during the fall months because they can be so aggravating, acorns are annoying to step on because many people get hurt on them each and every year by stepping on them which causes them to roll and people end up falling, spraining ankles, feet and even their legs or knees. But not many people know all of the many benefits of acorns.
Acorns can be used to feed many different types of wildlife such as deer, squirrels and other types of animals. Millions of dollars are spent each and every fall and winter purchasing acorns so that hunters can attract deer for the killing and in order to provide meat for their family.
Acorns can also be purchased as a staple item or family food. Acorn bread, jam and many others types of acorns are used to make tasty food.
You can even purchase acorns for crafts for vacation bible school, weddings, the holidays and much more.
So the next time you see those pesky little acorns, stop and realize all of the useful things that you can do with them. Or the next time your neighbor or someone you know has some that they are complaining about, go ahead and gladly take them off of their hands so that you can save yourself money in the long run!
