Are Acorns an Aphrodisiac?

You know what? I’ve read that acorns are “sexually strengthening.” I read that in an old herbal. The book mentioned acorns and oats as being sexually strengthening. I guess that’s what they mean when they say, “he’s feeling his oats.” Actually, oats must be really good for you. I have a horse and he gets frisky when he eats oats. But as far as acorns are concerned, I also read that the naturalist, John Muir, said that he found the bread that Northern California Indian women made for him “strengthening.” So that’s twice I saw that, but mind you, both of those were in the “olden days.” But… next time you see an oak tree with acorns lying on the ground, you might want to pick them up… it wouldn’t hurt to try.  Suellen Ocean is the author of Acorns and Eat’em, a how-to vegetarian cookbook and field guide for eating acorns.
