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.
Not terribly exotic but everyone always loves it:
almonds or pecans or walnuts (slightly salted), dried cherries, shaved coconut, chocolate chips - the coconut really makes it. Now that i think of it, this would be good if the nuts were glazed with sugar and cayenne.
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!
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.
