Akutaq (Eskimo Ice Cream), Alaska
Akutaq, also known as “Eskimo ice cream,” has roots dating back thousands of years among the Alaskan Inuits as a portable snack for hunters on extended trips. Earlier incarnations usually included fat rendered from a polar bear (preferably the first-caught of the season), mixed with seal oil, berries and snow; its modern version calls for shortening, berries, sugar and wateror snow, when handy.
