We have taken all sorts of Jell-O® fruit flavors and mixed them as experiments with different dried fruits. It works and works well.
Heres an example of just one of the varieties
we made as an experiment. Oh, and for Oatmeal, get yourself to Costco,
Sams, BJs wherever, and buy it in large bulk sizes. Its
dirt cheap that way.
Mix all ingredients dry and toss in freezer bag. Add one cup of boiling water in camp. Cozy about 8 minutes whether in pot or freezer bag.
Youll taste a hint of sweet orange when you try it.
As an FYI, I have used as much as a teaspoon and
a half in a cup of oatmeal with 1/4 cup fruit and 1/4 cup nuts and it
has not been too overpowering. For me anyway.
