I love these big acorns. I like the frilly edges too. And according to this site, a burr oak is a good candidate for making acorn meal, with less tannin than other oaks. I've got to remember that next year in the fall.

Everything in Texas is supposed to be bigger.

I had no idea that the burr oak had such big acorns. I've looked for them in ET but never have come across one.
