Jim Blum’s GORP recipe

Folk Alley host Jim Blum is a guy on the go (so much so that he couldn’t even type this himself!). Just because Jim is busy doesn’t mean he isn’t concerned about what he eats. As a gesture of love and friendship with the Folk Alley community, Jim has agreed to share the recipe for his world-class GORP (well, in Jim’s mind anyway):

  • Dried apricots (cut in half)
  • Soy nuts (non-hydrogenated)
  • Hot pumpkin seeds
  • Cashews
  • Dry roasted peanuts
  • Raisins (sometimes)
  • Sunflower seeds
  • Dried cranberries
  • Dried cherries
  • Can of mixed nuts (for good measure, “Just to fill things out” as Jim says).

Actually, I snuck a taste (Jim carries his GORP everywhere). It’s pretty good–it’s the hot pumpkin seeds that make it unique (I can still taste them).
