Raisin Mix

  • 2/3 cup raisins
  • 2/3 cup dried cranberries
  • 2/3 cup currants
  • 2/3 cup golden raisins (the ones I’ve found have sulfites)
  • 14-30 bite-size/petite dried prunes
  • (2/3 cup dried cherries — as soon as I find a safe source)

That makes 6 one-third-cup servings. (The currants end up packing in between the other fruits). That’s the recipe I used for my toddler

For adults (and other people who are good at chewing before swallowing) I’m adding:

Add this last, preferably at the very last minute before you head out the door. If you add it earlier these crunch bits will get soft.

  • 2/3 cup Divvie’s caramel corn or NoNuttin’s Vanilla Caramel Granola or home-made granola (rolled oats+honey+cinnamon on a baking sheet)


Mix everything but the prunes and the corn or granola

Divide into 1/3-cup sealed serving bags (for toddlers) or 2/3-cup sealed serving bags (for adults). Be sure to toss the mixture as you’re bagging to get currants in every bag (they sink to the bottom).

Divide the prunes evenly among the bags.

Put in your pantry for snack emergencies or go hiking. It’ll keep at least a little while, depending on your climate, the temperature in your pantry, and how well the bags seal.

For people who chew

For people who chew

I may increase the ratio of soybeans and caramel corn/granola in the adult version. I’m happy with the ratio in the toddler “raisin mix.”
