D. Dutch oven

Luckily it is possible to make Jell-O dishes in a Dutch oven, because the heavy pot has been Utah's official state cooking pot since 1997.

"It's been asked why Dutch ovens are used by more Utah families than other states and perhaps it's because for Utahns, families have a special significance and particularly their pioneer forbearers," the pioneer.utah.gov website states. "It's a unique and generational bonding experience for families to gather around a campfire after a meal from the same kind of Dutch ovens and tell the stories about and history of their pioneer ancestors."

Utah is home to the International Dutch Oven Society and hosts the World Championship Dutch Oven Cookoff each year.

Got almost all of them right, but I had an advantage. I taught fourth graders Utah history for many years.
