Having grown up in Rhode Island, I can not resist posting this link to an article in The Providence Journal about some peculiar local food favorites in that state. Some of my local hometown recipes, vary however.

"Day staffers Rick Koster and Katie Warchut drove to Providence to experience a Rhode Island tradition: the hot wiener.
Katie: I sometimes feel like crossing the Rhode Island border is like entering a foreign country, and I'm not talking about the accents.
Their clam chowder is clear. Their lemonade is frozen. They put coffee syrup in their milk, and apparently instead of hot dogs they eat hot wieners. Do you find this at all strange?"
