This nut was from a tree in Eastern Washington. I don't know whether the tree is ingenous or from somewhere else. Does anyone know what it is?

Thanks!

The west coast native Americans ate acorns but there is a lot of processing that goes into it. Acorns are high in tannins - you have to leach that out somehow.
