The Indians gave John Taylor a delicious paste, sweetened with honey. His family loved it! They had just arrived in the Salt Lake Valley and were tired of eating dried beef and flour cakes. John asked the Indians how they made the sweet treat. An old Indian showed him. First they encircled a field with fire. As it burned toward the middle, the crickets hopped into the center and were roasted crispy and brown. The burned crickets were crushed into a paste and honey was added. How much of the paste do you think they ate after they found out how it was made?
