(C) Watermelon pie’s
The following from the life of early pioneer James Ririe as told by La Verna Burnett Newey:
“I went over to Camp Floyd (This is where the soldiers of Johnston’s Army resided during their stay in Utah) with a load of wheat and some watermelon pies with no sugar in them, that my wife had baked. The pies went like hot cakes at fifty cents apiece, and I got one dollar seventy-five cents a bushel for the wheat.”
