If you're planning a trip into Michigan and you want to check off the "must-eat" local specialties, then there are
* The '''pasty''' (which rhymes with "nasty", not "hasty") is a traditional food in the Upper Peninsula, made with meat (usually beef), potato, onion, and sometimes rutabaga, wrapped in a light dough with a crimped edge. They originated from [[Cornwall]], in southwestern [[England]], and were brought to the area by Cornish miners who emigrated to the UP. The miners' wives would take everything that was left from the Sunday dinner, chop it up and wrap it in a semicircular pastry case, for their husbands to warm on their shovels and eat for lunch. These days, you can find pasty shops along highways in the UP, although their hours of operation may be limited.
* '''Maple syrup''' [http://www.mi-maplesyrup.com/] has been produced in Michigan as long as Native American tribes have lived here, and it can also be found in the form of maple candy.
