Apricot Raisin Cobbler

Shared by Front Row of Clyde, TX

Apricot Raisin Cobbler is a chewy, tart and vitamin-packed dessert that is easy to rehydrate and heat in one pot.

Serves: 2

Ingredients:

  • ½ cup diced dried apricots
  • ¼ cup white raisins
  • 1 caramel candy (keep wrapped for sealing)
  • 3 tsp dark brown sugar
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • Pinch nutmeg
  • Pinch salt
  • ¼ cup Graham cracker crumbs
  • ½ cup water

At Home:

In a FoodSaver bag, seal the Graham cracker crumbs. Put that bag into a larger bag along with the fruits, wrapped candy, and spices. Seal.

On the Trail:

In a pot over a low flame, add water and fruit packet.

Open candy and drop that into the water, too.

Cover pot and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from heat.

Stir in graham-cracker crumbs and allow the pot to steep in a cozy for 5 minutes.

Suggestions:

I like to soak and dehydrate pecan pieces (¼cup) and seal them for additional topping for this recipe. When the nuts have been soaked in salt water prior to dehydration, they are pleasantly salty and crunchy.


Chef Glenn’s Comments:

This dessert would be easy to prepare in a fry pan lid over three tea light candles while your main meal cooks in the pot. See my backpacking cookware page for more information about my pot and fry pan lid set-up.
