Traditional Mormon Cooking A Collection of Recipes from Past and Present
"This book contains modern renditions of many of the recipes that the hardy Mormons ate on their journey across the American Plains which became known as the Mormon Trail. As the thousands of pilgrims traveled from Nauvoo, volunteers stayed behind to set up temporary homesteads and to plant and cultivate crops that would feed even more settlers making their way west in the coming months. The food was hearty and fresh, often providing much needed sustenance to trail-weary travelers who were not well equipped to feed the hundreds of people with their group. These recipes represent the spirit of mutual service and cooperation that enabled the pioneers to survive the harsh terrain and severe weather conditions they encountered along the trail. "
