    Regional Cuisine where you're from

    So the gravy talk got me thinking about regional dishes and what is a common food where I'm from, some of you have never tried.

    So I will start:
    Sausage gravy and buscuts (yes, white gravy), a true comfort food

    Sweet tea...and none of that tea with packets of sugar added to your glass, it's not the same as adding the sugar to the pitcher while the tea is still warm. Jon thought I was crazy when we visited my family in PA and I explained that not everywhere has sweet tea.

    Blue crabs, traditional steam Chesapeake Bay blue crabs..YUM. it's more of an event than a meal.

    Rockfish. I don't know of everywhere has these, but they are also called striped bass and they are delicious when baked, grilled, or even fried.

    What about you guus, any special foods where you are from or live?

    Massachusetts..... Clam chowder, fried clams, Necco Wafers, baked beans with molasses, indian pudding, DD coffee, Frappes (that's a milkshake anyplace else), tonic (that's a soda or a pop anyplace else), Charleston Chew candy bars, clam cakes (fritters), Lobster, steamers (littleneck clams) and there are tons more that escape me now.

    I'm with you on the yuck on the boiled peanuts, peanuts should not be soft or slimy!

    I do love grits, and we do have mac and cheese for holidays...lol.

    And how cooked I forget smoked Virginia ham.
