Rock Candy

My wife’s paternal grandmother is famous in their family for her rock cookies. I’ve sampled them and can say they live up to the name—they’re definitely dunkers to me.

Another old-time favorite is rock candy. It’s hard to find in stores now, but if you drive through the east side of Zion National Park you’ll discover piles of it, tempting your sweet visual tooth.
