Happy belated Utah Pioneer Day

Yesterday was Pioneer Day, a state holiday here in Utah. In 1847, Brigham Young stood at the top of Immigration Canyon, said "This is the Place", and Utah was established. (It was many years until it became a actual state)The pioneers, who had walked 1000's of miles, spent that first 24th of July, settling in and being happy they had finally made it through their trek. The next day, they immediately started planting crops, laying out land plots, and getting organized. The symbol of Utah-the Beehive, standing for Industry and Hard Work.

I am in a regional food recipe exchange thru Swap-bot.com. We are to include one meat, one vegetarian and one dessert recipe, which we send to each of our two assigned partners. I also included two famous Utah recipes........Fry Sauce...... Utah Fry Sauce

1/2 cup ketchup
1/2 cup Mayonnaise

Mix together and dip in french fries (pictured above)

and......Green Jello....there was even a pin made for trading during the 2002 Olympics in Salt Lake City, Utah

Green Jello

serves 12

1 cup water

1 (6oz) package Lime Jell-O

1/2 cup sugar

2 Tbl lemon juice

1 cup crushed pineapple-undrained

2 cups whipping cream

Bring water to a boil. Put dry jell-o & sugar in a mixing bowl-pour boiling water over mix, stirring until gelatin is dissolved. Add lemon juice. Stir in pineapple. Refrigerate until syrupy. Whip cream until stiff. Fold whipped cream into jell-o mixture. Put mix into 9 X 13 pan. Refrigerate for several hours until firm.

I hope I get some unusual recipes in the exchange!

In Closing:Favorite regional recipe....what do you like making.....share, please!

Hmm... I don't know whether we have any regional foods here. The world is so globally focussed and homogenised. Who knew that my 7 year old was making 'fry sauce' to eat with his hot chips and fish fingers! I guess a pie floater (a meat pie swimming in pea soup) is considered to be quintessentially South Australian, but most of us don't eat it and we never make it at home. You go to the pie cart to buy one. It's kind of a tourist thing that we talk up I think.

Hmm, now I wanna go to JCW's and get some onion rings with fry sauce... Too bad they're oh 1600 miles away. LOL!
