Utah’s unique dipping sauce — specifically the one sold by Salt Lake City’s Hires Big H — was selected to represent Utah in a new "50 States, 50 Food Gifts" listing.

Utah fry sauce joins birch syrup from Alaska, tamales from Arizona, Key lime pie from Florida and bison from Wyoming on the list, published in the December issue of Food Network Magazine now on newsstands.

"In this state, where there are fries, there’s fry sauce," editors wrote about the Utah condiment, which was invented in the 1940s by the founder of Arctic Circle restaurant — a Hires competitor. (Arctic Circle won The Salt Lake Tribune’s fry sauce taste test last year.)

No one knows the original recipe for fry sauce, but "the sauce typically consists of two parts mayonnaise and one part ketchup and seasonings," Food Network editors wrote.

The list "highlights food gifts from all 50 states that anyone, anywhere will love — especially if they miss the taste of home," a magazine spokesperson wrote in an email. See the full list at www.foodnetwork.com/50-states-50-food-gifts/package/index.html?oc=linkback.
