GORP with a Twist recipe
“Good Old Raisins and Peanuts” has come a long way since we were kids. Combine as many dried fruits and nuts as you like to get your favorite combination, and pack several bags to satisfy munchies on the go.
Makes about 3-1/2 cups
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup chopped dried apricots
1/2 cup chopped dried pineapple
1/2 cup salted peanuts
1/2 cup salted cashews or almonds
1/4 cup dried sweet or sour cherries
1/4 cup dried strawberry slices
1/4 cup toasted pumpkin seeds
In a sealable plastic bag or bags, combine cranberries, raisins, apricots, pineapple, peanuts, cashews, cherries, strawberries and pumpkin seeds. Seal and store at room temperature for up to 1 month.
- Be sure to drink plenty of water when snacking on dried fruits. You need to replace the liquid you’d normally get from fresh fruit.
