The 2016 Good Food Awards include a number of Massachusetts winners. (In case you were wondering, the winners are awarded for "truly good food... food that is delicious, respectful of the environment, and connected to the communities and cultural traditions."
One of the winners, McCrea's Candies, is right in our own backyard of Hyde Park.
You may have heard of McCrea's. Their caramels have been getting a lot of buzz lately, especially around Boston's hipster capital - Somerville.
The candy company makes a wide variety of flavors - coffee, vanilla, deep chocolate, single malt scotch - that are all very good and would give your grandmother's homemade batch of caramels a run for their money. But the Good Food Award judges got it right when they singled out McCrea's black lava sea salt caramels.
