Here is an obituary of hers:

Ann Rutt, 92; co-founded Rutt's Hut
Monday, October 8, 2001
Ann Fedorchak Rutt of Clifton, one of the founders of Rutt's Hut, died
Friday. She was 92.She and her late husband, Royal Abe Rutt, first started
selling frankfurters in 1928 out of a makeshift hot-dog stand on land he
purchased above what is now Route 20.
The 'hut" was later expanded to a full-sized restaurant. Mrs. Rutt worked at
the establishment while raising her daughter, Grace, through World War II. It
was at that time that she took over creating the famous relish served at the
restaurant. It was a secret recipe, handed down from Royal Rutt's mother.
Mrs. Rutt made the relish in a relative's home in large vats, and had it
transported daily to the resturant.
She quit working in 1954, when Royal Rutt lost a leg due to disease. He
continued to do the administrative work for the business while Ann cared for
him at home.The restaurant was sold in 1976.
The new owners kept the name.
I personally have never tried it so I cannot give a taste comparison.
If anyone ever talks to UncleVic send it to him.
