Combine the water, corn and acorn flour, whisk and heat until simmering, whisking constantly. When the mixture thickens, transfer it to a 250 degree oven, cover, and cook for 1 hour, or until the corn and acorn particles are tender.
Season to taste with salt, and serve. If the mixture is too thick or loose for your taste, adjust it by cooking longer, or thinning with water, etc.
Playing with your acorn flour %
This is super rich stuff. could even up the amount of acorn flour to 50 % if you want, but 1/3 is fine for me, any more ends up making a very heavy bowl of food.
