What kind of food did the people on the Mormon trail eat?

Pioneers on the Mormon Trail ate the same sorts of foods you would find on all pioneer trails at the time. Common provisions included flour, corn meal, potatoes, onions, apples, and dried meats. Most companies would take along some cows, chickens, or pigs to provide food along the way, and hunted for wild game to eat as well. There were several stops along the way that had stores for buying more food, and occasionally they would find wild berries or small crops of potatoes, carrots, turnips, onions, and other produce planted by previous companies.
