 For ten years while living on the go, Janet Groene lived off  grid for months at a time. She developed her recipes while living on a boat with no oven nor refrigeration and in a camper with miniature galley and limited water.  See her shortcut recipes for camping here and boating here.

Gluten Free Dessert Gorp
    Here is one for your sweet tooth. It’s a perfect “talking and walking” dessert to take along on a fitness walk after a big meal.
9 cups gluten-free square cereal
1 cup brown sugar
1 stick butter
Pinch salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup light corn syrup
2 cups honey-roasted whole almonds
     Put cereal and nuts in a large, buttered or sprayed, microwave-safe dish. Bring sugar, butter and salt to a boil in a saucepan. Boil 3 minutes.  Stir in baking soda and corn syrup. Drizzle over cereal and microwave a total of 3 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds. Stir occasionally as it cools. When it’s completely cool package by the cupful. Makes 11 cups.
