The Dinner Recipe That Your State Googles the Most

As more and more information becomes accessible via the internet, people are increasingly ridding themselves of paper and physical reference materials. Cookbooks are part of that downsizing. Any recipe one can imagine is free of charge and at the fingertips of anyone with an internet-enabled device. 

Thus, Google is used by millions of people daily to search for recipes, and their "Google Trends" capability is one way to glean further insight. The results are not scientifically accurate, but they are a good benchmark. Below is information on what dinner recipes are Googled the most, by state.

OK - I bit. For those dying to know, it's actually pretty easy. From the top of the Google list:
1. If necessary, soak the gammon (ham) in cold water to reduce saltiness, according to butcher or packet instructions (most do not need this anymore as curing methods have changed).
2. Weigh to calculate the cooking time.
3. Place in a large pan, cover with cold water and bring to the boil.

Boiled dinners are pretty big in Europe and it seems nearly all the top responses have a .UK or are UK related so I guess we have to depend upon our cousins to get it right. . .

P.S. We don't boil Lobster much up here - steaming is the way to go. Much easier and quicker too.

P.S.S. No worries here Miss Celllania - outside of soup, why would anyone boil a ham?
