Chinook olives

The aboriginal people of the Columbia river valley used urine to cure acorns. European fur traders on the Lower Columbia gave the dish the name Chinook Olives.

About 35 L of acorns were placed in a hole near the entrance of a house. The acorns were then covered with a thin layer of grass and then dirt. Urine from every family member was collected and deposited in the hole for the next 5 6 months.

The dish was considered a delicacy.
