Blueberries are the State Fruit of New Jersey (where I live). Here's a tasty way to serve them...

BLUEBERRY RIPPLE (LEMON BUTTERMILK) ICE CREAM

This ice cream is very low in butterfat, so it’s best served the same day you make it. Later, it tends to become “rocky.” The tangy flavor of the lemon and buttermilk complement the blueberries very well.

6 servings

for the Blueberry Ripple:

1/2 cup blueberries
1/4 cup Crème de Cassis liqueur
1/4 cup cold water
2 tablespoons cane sugar
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup whole blueberries

Combine all ingredients except the second 1/2 cup of blueberries in a small, non-reactive saucepan. Simmer the mixture over low heat until it forms a thick syrup, and the berries fall apart. Remove from heat and add the remaining berries. Allow the mixture to cool thoroughly.

for the Lemon Buttermilk Ice Cream:

6 large egg yolks
1/3 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
3/4 cup superfine sugar
2 cups buttermilk
the zest of 1 large lemon

1. In the top of a double boiler, whisk together egg yolks, sugar and lemon juice. Set the pan over gently shimmering water and cook, whisking constantly, until a candy thermometer registers 175 degrees F. This may take about 10 minutes. In any case, don’t let the mixture boil.

2. Strain the mixture through a sieve into a fairly flat bowl and allow to cool while the surface is covered with a piece of waxed paper.

3. Combine the buttermilk and lemon zest with the cooled lemon mixture thoroughly, and freeze in an ice cream maker, following the manufacturer’s directions. When the ice cream has achieved a soft-frozen consistency, remove from the freezer and place in a very cold stainless steel bowl. Swirl in the blueberry syrup, then carefully transfer the ice cream to a freezer container, and allow to “season” in the freezer for several hours.

Texas is known for chili and BBQ. We have a Taste of Texas every April and feast on barbeque, chili and smoked steaks.

Illinois needs to be divided in two...Northern and Southern. Actually, there have been attempts to make Southern Illinois a separate state since the Civil War, and they are still going on today.
Chicago's deep-dish pizza would be their claim to fame, I think.
Down here in the south, the unique Burton's Cafe White Pie, or our rolled-style dumplings are our signature dishes.
And I can't forget fried bluegill...bluegill is our state fish.

Northern MN, is well known for it's Wild Rice HOTDISH or Wild Rice Soup. Ya Ya, Lutefisk is served around holidays but only by the older folks. Can't stand it myself. The churches serve it usually around deer season.
