- "Often found on the ground near trees. Squirrels adore this nut, so you may have competition while foraging. Add one to a meal for a nutty seasoning."
- — In-game text from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
Acorns are items in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Acorns are curative items that restore Link's health by refilling a quarter of a Heart Container. They are an extremely common nut which can be usually found around trees in forested areas. Link can also obtain them by hunting Squirrels who have a habit of eating acorns off the ground preventing Link from obtaining them, though Link can drive them off by simply walking or running close to them or kill one with a Arrow which will scare off other squirrels nearby.
Acorns can be used to add a healing effect when added to the recipe of certain Elixirs. Link can also make Sautéed Nuts by Cooking them alone or with Chickaloo Tree Nuts. They can also be used to make Nutcake, which Misa suggests in her Nutcake recipe found in Misa's Recipe Book at the Rito Village Slippery Falcon as they are her personal favorite. Link can also roast them with fire or in the volcanic heat of Death Mountain to create Roasted Acorn.
