Backpacking Recipe

GORP (Good Old Raisins and Peanuts)


There are literally hundreds of variations to “GORP” as it is called by many.

1 jar Dry Roasted Peanuts
1 15 oz. Box of Raisins
1 large Bag of M&M’s
1 large Bag of Reese’s Piece’s
1 bag of Shredded Coconut

This is my basic starting mix.

Other items I like are:

Yogurt Chips, Banana Chips, Apple Chips, Dried Pineapple, Dried Cranberries

The list goes on and on. Mix & Match, what ever you like. Make It. It’s tasty and packed full of energy.

This snack is very portable. Take Camping, Hiking, Backpacking. Take it everywhere.

What’s Cooking?
How do we know when its done?
We use the smell test.
When it smells done, its done.
When it smells burnt, its burnt
and
When you can't smell it,
its not done.
