About These Recipes—

Amish families gather around their long kitchen tables for three meals together every day. It may be a routine, but the food they enjoy is beyond the ordinary.

The Amish dress austerely; they discipline themselves by driving buggies and refusing electricity in their homes. They work hard and long. But when they eat, they celebrate!

The Amish are friends of the earth, respectful of the soil, alert to the seasons. And so their gardens produce bountifully. Their abundant farms offer them eggs, milk, cream, and livestock.

And when they set aside work to socialize, the Amish surround their events with food—plentiful, homemade, and comfortingly delicious. The school picnic, sisters day, family reunions, farm auctions, singings, weddings, and church—all would be unthinkable without a vast spread of food.

Here are some of their favorite recipes. Prepare them, eat them with family or friends, and sample one part of these people's lives.

These dishes are likely to become some of your favorites, too!

—Phyllis Pellman Good
