New Hampshire Food Trail: Ice Cream
With some 130 active dairy farms producing more than 40 million gallons of milk a year, New Hampshire has plenty of fresh stuff left over to accommodate everyone’s favorite traditional summer pastime: a trip to the local ice-cream stand. Most of the state’s dairies lie up and down the Connecticut and Merrimack river valleys, but the ice cream itself–spanning flavors from simple vanilla to “Moose Tracks” (a luscious mix of vanilla, fudge, and peanut-butter cups)–may be found wherever your sweet tooth leads, including shops and takeout places that have been using local ingredients in their deliciously chilly treats for generations.
