Anyone have a favorite and unique Gorp recipe?
I'm looking for something that hopefully transcends the typical raisins, granola, peanuts, m&m's combo.
I recall on a recent hiking trip that someone brought along Gorp made with Honey Bunches of Oats, mueslix, Japanese deep-fried edemame and other stuff and some sort of special seasoning that had hints of nutmeg, cinammon and maybe even ginger or chili pepper.
Thanks very much.
My recent trailmix - was a hit:
Nut mix (almonds, hazelnuts, brazilnuts, pecans and walnuts)
Pumpkin and sunflower seeds
Raisins (brown and yellow)
These crunchy sesame sticks you can buy in bulk from a healthstore
I like the crunch and saltines of the sesame sticks. Next time I'll try those chinese takeout crunchy noodles.
Dried mango pieces are also a great addition...and once I had a fruit mix with very thick, large apple slices that seemed semi-dried (not as dry as banana chips, but not as "wet" as dried plums - sort of in the middle...it was still soft and pliable, and moist when bitten into). Obviously I don't know what I'm talking about here - does anyone recognize this description at all?

Dried pineapple and dried papaya really made the last GORP I had excellent. Not sure what else was there, but I think it was: almonds, peanuts, maybe other nuts; seeds (pumpkin or sunflower); papaya, pineapple, dried cranberries, raisins; a few coconut flakes. Didn't even miss the chocolate.
My friend makes this awesome trail mix and brings it to our annual camping voyage to Wisconsin. Here are the essentials:
Teddy Grahams, original
Chocolate-covered espresso beans (new addition this year. Awesome!)
This is definitely a departure from your every day trail mix and it goes FAST in our crew!
