If you're from Maine, odds are you've heard of needhams — a traditional sweet with a surprising ingredient.
While Maine is famous for its sweet blueberries and maple syrup, it has another, more earthy, local crop: potatoes.
Jon Courtney, a friend who lives in Cape Elizabeth, Maine, first stumbled on needhams a few years ago. Now, he's hooked.
"Basically it's coconut and sugar dipped in chocolate," Courtney says. "So if you were to pick one up, you'd be like, 'Oh! This is a homemade Mounds bar.' "
