Apple Salad
Eleanore Kohns
1 cup milk
1/2 cup surgar
1 Tsp. Flour
1 egg white
dash of salt

Mix together sugar and flour. Beat in egg white. Add milk, salt and vanilla. Mix all together over low heat until it thickens. Cool and refrigerate until ready to use. Pour mixture over diced apples, or any combination of fruits. Some examples: raisins, pineapple, mandarin oranges, grapes, etc.

Note: Fruit should be dry or dressing will become soupy. This is a great recipe to have on hand and just prepare fruit at last minute. I have also added sunflower seed to this and it adds that sweet and salty combo.

One thought on “Camp Recipes

  1. So I made the baked oatmeal, but it didn’t turn out like it does up there – I baked it in a 9×9 pan there was no pan size given – wondered if there were any tweaks to the recipe.
