Massachusetts

Of the original Thirteen Colonies, the Bay State was home to some of the most important events leading up to the American Revolution; the Boston Tea Party, Paul Revere’s ride, Lexington and Concord, and Bunker Hill need no further explanation, they are so much a part of the cultural narrative. In the 17th century, Native Americans and English immigrants came into contact along the coast of Massachusetts. The culinary outcome of their convergence includes the chowders, baked bean casseroles, pies, stews, and succotash dishes that have helped define New England’s regional cooking. Cod and molasses helped build the economy of colonial Massachusetts. Molasses, a key ingredient in Boston baked beans and Boston brown bread, came from the Caribbean islands and was fermented and distilled into rum. For 300 years, the Atlantic cod-fishing industry helped sustain many Massachusetts port towns until the collapse of cod stocks in the 1990s. Massachusetts is also a big cranberry-producing state, particularly in Cape Cod and the island of Nantucket. Bay scallops are also fished in Nantucket and Cape Cod.
