Anyone ever tried that Southern substitute for coffee during the war (or one of them, anyway): acorn coffee?

The stuff came back in the UK during WW1 and WW2, and a little bit in the US during the Depression and WW2. I learned about it 30 years ago in Boy Scouts.

Gather up fresh acorns in the autumn. Boil them, shell them, and dry the nut matter. Roast that in the oven, grind it up like coffee beans, and then brew as normal.

How's that for all'y'all hardcore Confederate reenacting types? :D
