“The U.S. Travel’s “Vote Travel Bus Tour” is a coast-to-coast tour of destinations across America to educate the public of the enormous value of travel. Tourism is vital to Utah’s economy with total spending by travelers at $6.5 billion in 2010, up 4.7% from the previous year. Utah welcomed 20.2 million international and domestic travelers in 2010, generating $842 million in traveler spending. According to the Governor’s Office of Planning and Budget, tax relief per household due to tourism revenue was $1,012.27, up from $948.41 in 2009.” – from the Utah Office of Tourism Agenda
Just outside The Nauvoo Cafe!! We loved having this group!
The Nauvoo Cafe is one of the freshest, most delicious sandwich restaurants in town! What do we mean by freshest? Well, just take a look:
Your meat is cut right in front of you! And no, we don’t use a big slicing machine to make paper thin strips of meat. If you want meat, you get meat, and a lot of it!
Next, your sandwich is placed through a heating oven, making your bread slightly crisped and your cheese deliciously melted.
Then, if you’d like any vegetables, we load it up with the freshest ones possible. You also get your choice of mouth-watering sauce drizzled across your delectable creation.
And there it is…the finished product! Stay and eat this beautiful meal in our dining area or out on the patio, along with any of our other great options: salads, pot pies, soups, chips, and desserts. You can also take your meal to go. And you can even call or email your order ahead of time and pick it up on the go!
Temple Square Hospitality is now selling authentic Old Nauvoo Jam! The jars can be purchased at both The Nauvoo Cafe and The Lion House Pantry in four delicious flavors – raspberry, strawberry, peach and pomegranate pepper.
Old Nauvoo Jam was developed by Russ Reed (pictured above) who grew up near Nauvoo, Illinois. The jams and jellies are produced in Hurricane, Utah. Reed’s credo is to “use as much Utah fruit as possible”. Old Nauvoo Jam contains no artificial preservatives, flavor, or coloring. The simple ingredient recipe include fruit, pectin, lemon juice, and cane sugar.
Russ Reed does most of the work himself, blending, mixing, and tasting his creations until perfectly delicious.
“My mother and grandmother were famous jam makers in Quincy, which is just south of Nauvoo,” says Reed. “You might say I’m following in their footsteps.”
He inherited his mother’s secret jam recipes several years ago, and Russ embarked on recreating and refining the many flavors he enjoyed at the table as a child.
“I’ve always felt there was a need for old-fashioned, homemade jam like we enjoyed in the old days. Now it seems like everyone doesn’t have time to make jams and jellies anymore,” says Reed.
Temple Square Hospitality introduced these new jams during General Conference weekend. Russ Reed came to serve samples of the jam on Lion House rolls and answer questions from the public.
