I'm going to be essentially camping (living in a cabin with access to some sort of kitchen) this summer. In the month before this, May, I will have time off for lack of a job and access to cheap groceries (I will be staying near the food coop I am a member of). I am looking for suggestions of things I can make ahead while I have time and access to cheap food. I may try my hand at making jam, but that will probably still not be economical since berries won't be in season yet. I need things that keep well in a pantry (or cabin...) that do not require refrigeration (until after opening, I will have a bit of fridge space).
So far all I have in mind are
- home made granola
- stocking up on crackers and dried fruit!
Any further suggestions will be greatly appreciated
