ˈskrɒɡɪn/

noun

AUSTRALIAN/NZ
 
  1. … a mixture of dried fruit, nuts, and other food eaten as a snack by hikers.

This was a favourite snack for long car trips when I was kid. Now in our house, it is a favourite anytime snack!

Preparation

  • Nuts and seeds contain anti-nutrients, soaking them helps to generate more healthful enzymatic activity.
  • Soak in fresh water for 24 hours
  • Soaked nuts and seeds tend to be a bit chewy, but dehydrating them will restore their crunch texture – be sure to use a dehydrator temperature not exceeding 50 deg. C.
  • In selecting dried fruit ensure it is organic and dried naturally by the sun. Look for packages that say “no sulfites,” as this is a toxic preservative that maintains colour. Dried fruit shouldn’t look like the original, while it might not look as appealing, brown and shrivelled is at times, the healthier option.

Make a mix of all or any of the following for a snack containing a powerhouse of enzymes, minerals, and essential fatty acids…
