New Jersey



New Jersey

One of the original Thirteen Colonies, the Garden State is called the “Crossroads of the Revolution” because British and Continental Armies frequently criss-crossed it during the American Revolution. On Christmas morning, 1776, George Washington famously crossed the Delaware River into New Jersey, defeating first the Hessians and then the British. New Jersey remains a crossroads today; it’s part of the Northeast megalopolis, a densely populated corridor that connects suburbs from Washington, D.C. all the way north to Boston. Cranberry sauce, saltwater taffy, and the ice cream cone are New Jersey creations. Jersey is also the diner capital of the world and a major producer of tomatoes, sweet corn, cranberries, peaches, and blueberries. Camden, New Jersey, is the home of Campbell’s Soup Company, which has been in operation since shortly after the American Civil War. By the middle of the 20th century, Campbell’s would have a big impact on the way Americans cooked and ate, once cooks began incorporating condensed soups into dishes like casseroles. New Jersey remains a major player in food processing, including canning and freezing food.
