Overview

The Amish are a religious group who live in settlements in 22 of the United States and Ontario, Canada. The oldest group of "Old Order Amish," about 16-18,000 people live in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.

The Amish stress humility, family and community, and separation from the world. The Amish and Mennonites both settled in Pennsylvania as part of William Penn's "holy experiment" of religious tolerance.

The Amish women are amazingly good cooks, but only cook plain foods raised on their farms, such as pork, beef, chicken, turkey, and garden vegetables.
There is a lot made of certain Amish recipes, and it seems that every Amish recipe book and site has the same ones. That list is so short that it is a miracle the Amish can survive on such a limited diet! The truth is that the Amish have far more recipes than are widely known, and if you like Amish food, you may like some of the other things they make.

Good Food begins with really UNDERSTANDING food, and who understands food better than those who work with it from its very beginning than the Amish?

The Amish grow their own food, raise their own meat, and create their own dairy products. They do this in the old traditional way, without hormones and chemical additives. All of these recipes in this 41 page book work best with FRESH and locally or home-grown foods. You can get them at your local farmer's market.

    Missing lots of pages

    While looking through the recipes I found lots of blank pages. At one point it went from page 32 to page 52, what happened to the pages in between? Disappointed I didn't get the entire book.

    Another great Amish recipe book.

    I have been familiar with Amish cooking from other recipe books, but this book has so many more secrets, my cooking is at a different level now.
