Peach-glazed pig cheeks


With the State Fair still more than two months away, the Pioneer Press has sounded the first Fair food alert, predicting “the year of the potato,” along with such delicacies as: “Peach-glazed pig cheeks. French-fry-encrusted hot dogs. The tornado potato. German sausages wrapped in potato.” For food off-the-stick, check out “Ole and Lena’s ‘deep-fried Norwegian banana split’ — a banana rolled in lefse, deep fried and topped with ice cream, raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, whipped cream and nuts.”
