Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cup (1 oz) freeze-dried apples
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cloves
  • cup granola
  • ¼ cup chopped walnuts

Instructions

AT HOME

  1. Place the freeze-dried apples, brown sugar, cinnamon, and cloves in a sealable bag. In a second bag, place the granola and the walnuts.

IN CAMP

  1. Empty the apple mix into your cookpot. Add about 3 oz water to the pot and stir. Light your stove, then cook over a medium-low flame until the apples have softened, the sugar dissolves, and the liquid thickens a bit, stirring often and adding more water if needed.
  2. Once the apple mixture is ready, remove the pot from the heat and sprinkle the granola and walnuts over the top. Grab your spork and dig in!

INGREDIENT NOTES

We used a package of freeze-dried Fuji apples from Trader Joe's for this recipe. If you don't have access to a Trader Joe's, you could sub with oven dried apples (just reduce the water a bit when cooking).
