In fact, I have consumed inordinate amounts of GORP and was completely blown away the other day when I discovered that my kids had NEVER had it! WHAT A FAILURE I AM :)
It was tons of fun surprising my kids and actually buying candy at the grocery store! For our first batch, we stuck with the traditional recipe: Raisins + Peanuts + M&Ms. Hmmm, I suppose the true traditional recipe would just be raisins and peanuts, but that would seem sacrilegious! Simply mix equal parts of your ingredients and hit the trail!
There is not specific recipe and you can let your creative juices flow! Here are some of my favorite additions:
*note: when mixing GORP, I prefer to mix small amounts at a time. Depending on the humidity, peanuts may soften/ raisins may dry/ freeze dried food might loose it's crunch...
- vanilla yogurt bites
- freeze dried corn (tastes like candy!)
- freeze dried blueberries/ raspberries/ apricots/ mango/ bananas (hello extra serving of fruit/vegetable!)
What's your favorite GORP combo?
