I remember seeing those at the Greenmarket , when I lived in NYC . thought it was some sort of joke ( no offense __ but I'm sure you understand the ages old rivalry across the Bay )Never heard of Jersey tomatoes?
You guys have cranberries up the wazoo too. It was a real eye opener when I went to Jersey for the first time.In NJ, you don't have to go anywhere special or even to a supermarket to get those tomatoes - or delicious Jersey corn. There are plenty of farm stands along local and county roads where you can buy them directly from the farmer.
Edit: Oh! And blueberries are coming into season! Fresh blueberries and home made blueberry pies right from the farm stands! Jeez... it's no wonder I can't lose weight!
Big time. I used to work in the town of Cranbury too.You guys have cranberries up the wazoo too. It was a real eye opener when I went to Jersey for the first time.
Hanover is pretty close to Baltimore. There's not much in this world more delicious than a Maryland crab cakeMaryland seems to be known for its steamed Blu
e Crabs covered in Old Bay seasoning out of the Chesapeake Bay.
you just get a pile of them dumped on the table and start tearing them apart...

that's about the only thing I can think of as "maryland food." Crab cakes from Baltimore are pretty great, too. I used to get really pissed ordering Crab Cakes in Chicago because they're just garbage. Expensive, tiny, 'nothing but filler+breadcrumbs'..garbage.
Real crab-cakes are like a bit fat patty of fried crab meat (half shredded/half chunks) almost the size of a can of tuna. You can have them like a hamburger, so ..hamburger sized. It's 'punch yo mama' good!

we also have crab-toast which is a slice of italian or french bread, with a scoop of crab-meat on top, then a slice of mozzarella (or provolone) cheese, then sprinkled with Old Bay and lightly toasted. That sht is THE BOMB! I can eat like 20 of them.

...otherwise we pretty much have everything,..italian, chinese, mexican, indian, etc. Just in varying degrees of authenticity and taste.
Everything here now comes prepared and frozen apart from the fish. All the chips and potato cakes taste exactly the same wherever you go. It's ruined bought fish & chips for me I'm afraid.How I miss these! Real fish and chips.
Sadly, South Florida is a wasteland when it comes to fine cuisine or anything even remotely memorable. However, the Cilantro Soup at Eduardo de San Angel in Fort Lauderdale is world-class.
