Moving along through the iconic food of the states we come to Maine. Now I have had lobster in many other states besides Maine but somehow this state always makes one think of lobster. I am a big lobster fan and hope to have some in the future. Maine offers incredibly delicious lobster salad with plenty of mayonnaise piled into a buttered and toasted roll.
The state of Maryland is well-known for its blue crabs which are only found in the Chesapeake Bay. The crab meat is always sweet and tender. The state is popular for its crab dip and crab cakes or just steamed crabs with Old Bay seasoning.
You’ll find delicious New England Clam Chowder in the state of Massachusetts where it is made with fresh clams, bacon, potatoes, cream, and fish stock.
As for the cherries you’ll have to go to Michigan which is one of America’s leading producers of cherries. This state harvests more than 90,000 tons of cherries each year. The National Cherry Festival is held every July in Traverse City, Michigan.
