An earlier post led to a discussion of local sausage and scrapple and it made me think -- what local foods should visitors from other areas sample while they're vacationing in Delaware?
I don't mean which restaurants they should try. Just foods that are local/regional that they might see on a menu or find in a local supermarket.
In that previous post, there were recommendations for sausage by Milton Sausage and Kirby & Holloway. Also Kirby & Holloway scrapple. All made in DE.
Another fave of mine is Lebanon bologna. (OK, originated in PA, but widely available in Delaware grocery stores. And unknown in many parts of the US.) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lebanon_bologna Nothing like plain old bologna. I think the "regular" is better than "sweet," if you get both to choose from.
And of course there are fresh mushrooms, some raised in nearby PA but lots available from mushroom farms in Hockessin, DE.
It's a small state, so maybe the food itself (like sausage) isn't unique -- but just made very very well by a DE or nearby producer.
So -- What else should be on the "Delaware Foods to Sample" list?
