July 2020 Trail Bytes: Peach Granola Clusters & Hot Peach Crumble
July 21, 2020
Hello,

This month’s edition of Trail Bytes leads you to new recipes on the BackpackingChef.com website. Since the topics are substantial, it made sense to present them as web pages. The featured backpacking recipe of the month was shared by Barbara Bell, so I just had to add some tasty options for dessert using dehydrated peaches.

Yellow Mung Dal

Yellow Mung Dal is made from split mung beans, which are similar to lentils. They cook up as easy as rice, and are a good source of fiber and protein.

Barbara's recipe for Yellow Mung Dal shows several ways to prepare it on the trail. Thanks Barbara!

Dehydrating Peaches

This new page covers the basics of dehydrating peaches, including peach leather made from grated peaches.

There’s also a recipe for Peach Granola Clusters, which taste like fruity oatmeal cookies. Dominique has been taking these to work to snack on.

You can make a wonderful Peach Perfect Trail Mix with Peach Granola Clusters, dried peaches, and grated peach leather…

Or, you can turn it into Hot Peach Crumble for a trail dessert. It’s really tasty.

Introduction to Drying Food Presentation

Earlier this month, I was invited by the Appalachian Mountain Club of NY/NJ to give a Zoom presentation about dehydrating food. It was for their Lunch & Learn Series. The recorded presentation goes for thirty minutes, followed by thirty minutes of Q & A. The Q & A session bogged down a few times due to a slow internet connection, but the first part went smoothly. It was the first time I had used Zoom, so it was a good learning experience. Thank you AMC for the opportunity to connect with your members.

I inserted the recorded presentation on the Dehydrating Food page of the website. Just scroll down a bit to find it.

That’s it for this month. Since we won’t be travelling abroad anytime soon, Dominique and I have been exploring the Swiss mountains closer to home. The photos are from the last two weekends.

Stay safe and healthy. Keep to the trails less travelled. Dry some peaches.

Gute Gesundheit,

Chef Glenn & Dominique
