Huckleberry Pie

Enjoy the "other" state food - the Huckleberry

The rescue effort continues for a trapped miner in the panhandle section of Idaho.  Today the effort shifted from digging out to boring a rescue shaft.  As our thoughts and prayers go out to the family and rescue workers we turned our dinner table into an exploration of Idaho.  More than potato a rich agri- and aqua-culture resides in the mountains and rivers of this great state.

The Menu

Entree

Smoked Trout Skewers – Creative recipe to use herbs to smoke the state fish of Idaho.

Idaho Burrito – From the Bazine High School Cookbook.  Substitutes mashed potatoes for refried beans in a simple, economic burrito recipe.
