Fries With No Fry Sauce Would Be Awful

By Blake Jacobs

Sauces and dips can bring life to and improve any dish into delicacy status for any state, region or food chain. For any typical boy or girl, it can turn a usually regular dish to an excellent family recipe and its cook, into chef status. Most often, these memorable sauces undoubtedly become so unique and widespread that hardly anyone would realize where or who it came from. An example such dishes would be the fry sauce in Utah. To distinguish how well liked fry sauce is it in Utah, you can equate it to how sushi is to the Japanese and kimchi is to Koreans and maple syrup is to Canadians. That is how integral and popular fry sauce is to Utahans.

To discover the puzzle, fry sauce is merely a formula of 1 cup ketchup and 2 cups mayonnaise. Without it, French fries would merely be browned potatoes for the people who eat it with practically anything.

The fry sauce began in the form of regional condiment that is claimed to have been created by the Arctic Circle Restaurant long ago in the 1940s. Even though the cafe is naught in imparting its real secret recipe, you can opt if you are into some experimenting and you do not like to pay money for the ready to consume sauce.

The recipe is easily done and can be made by any grade school kid. You would need four major components to create this dip: 2 cups real mayonnaise, 1 cup ketchup, dill pickle juice and salt for flavoring. Now just blend the mayonnaise and ketchup together. Once thoroughly blended, you can add the dill pickle extract to make the mixture to dissolve it a little bit and to give that extra sweet-sour taste. You can now add the salt to suit the taste of the sauce to your very own choosing.

Through the years, the sauce’s popularity has crossed borders and also nations. There are a variety of choices to the fry sauce and in most cases it can easily be judged next to or mistaken for the Thousand Island or Russian dressing.

Sometimes, the fry sauce blend is added with garlic or onion and rather than the dill pickle juice, lemon juice is added. Other types of versions have included cayenne pepper or Tabasco for a spicy tang. You can also notice versions that would possibly have red wine vinegar, balsamic vinegar horseradish sauce or stone ground mustard.

If ever you stay in Utah however, it is excellent to enjoy local tradition and then fly off to the Arctic Circle (the one true source), Carl’s Jr., Crown Burgers, Hires Big H or the Apollo Burger. You can get it as take out or you can get to the local Ogden catering restaurants would most definitely carry fry sauce as among its set of choices.

To taste is to believe–so mix up your own mixture of the fry sauce in your personal kitchen and make your friends and family and visitors indulge to what could have been a dull serving of fries. Who is to believe if this will start out elevating your culinary artist wannabe persona to Rachel Ray standing?
