The perfect trail mix – or snack!

The perfect trailmixAfter many years of experimenting I have finally found the perfect nut mix, or trail mix. But, did I invent it myself? No, unfortunately not. I found it on a hike in the north of Sweden, at Grövelsjön in their nice restaurant.
It is so good that I always want to have a pre-mixed jar in my cupboard, ready to grab a handful for a snack or to add in my yoghurt in the morning. Here is the mix:

  • Sunflower seeds
  • Hazelnuts
  • Pumpkin seeds
  • Cashewnuts (not salted)
  • Almonds

The perfect trailmixThe measurements are done “on feeling”. A little bit more of what you like the most. Rost them in the oven without any added fat or oil until they’ve gotten a bit of colour.

Now you won’t go hungry on your next hike!

A portable fridge that will not add any extra weight!

In the heat of the summer it can be tricky to keep food cool. If you don’t want to drag around a cooler with you here is a trick to keep the food at the right temperature on a summer picnic or hike.

The night before, take two plastic bottles and fill them with 4/5 parts of water – beware that water expands when freezing! Put them in the freezer without the cork and let the water freeze to ice.

In the morning you screw the corks shut and use them to cool the food in your backpack. The ice will slowly melt during the day providing you with perfectly cool drinking water too!
